Just picking up on this again after comments in this thread
and this one
that Remember Me is not working.
First, by Remember Me I mean the function that allows you to be "recognised" again automatically by the site, so that you do not need to log in when you return. This is different from allowing your Web browser to remember your username and password; in this latter case, you can press the log in button without completing those fields, because the browser remembers them for you. This is generally known as auto-completion.
We have disabled auto-completion because of PCI compliance
. The IET is required under the terms of its agreement with its bank to comply with PCI standards in order to take credit card payments.
However, the recent design change should not have affected the working of the Remember Me function. If you are finding problems, I suggest that you submit a report via the Webmaster form
, being as specific as possible about times, dates, and whether you are likely to have been connecting from the same network. For example, users taking laptops and other devices to a variety of locations may find that Remember Me is not so successful as where the PC remains using the same connection.
