Update to “Remember Me” Button

gsnRecently we introduced the “Remember Me” button under your password on the login screen. We did make a small change by having the checkbox automatically checked for you when you log in. If you prefer not to have the site remember you, just uncheck the box before you log in.   

We recommend you not use this option on public or shared computers.  If you share your computer with other family members and do use this option, be sure to click on the “log out” link in the upper right hand corner of the screen when you’re finished with your session. That way, the next person to log in won’t be doing so under your name. 

For security reasons, you will still get prompted to verify your identity by entering your password if it’s been two weeks since you last logged in and at certain points in the site such as:

  • Going to Cash Games
  • Accessing My Account
  • Making a purchase (either on the web or in the game)

The “Remember Me” function will only work if you have cookies enabled. Clearing cookies will also clear “Remember Me”.

  1. Somehow that passed me by this morning, but it’s a GREAT idea! I really don’t like having to log in my password every time and appreciate the efforts that “THE GSN TEAM” goes through to make things easier for us to deal with if we so choose. “Options” are always appreciated! 🙂 Again, many thanks! 🙂
    Warm Regards,

  2. I love this feature, however, I’m not sure it is working without glitches. The login screen continues to pop up, even though I’ve checked Remember Me. And the login screen comes up even when I’m already logged in and I just move around the tabs at the top. Any info on this?

    • Hi JJ, I talked with the web team. They would like some more information if possible, or specifics on what you’re seeing.

      1. Are you using the same browser each time? It will only remember you on the browser you click “remember me” on.

      2. Also, do you have cookies enabled? Clearing cookies would cause you not be remembered anymore.

      Thank you for any information!

      • Same browser, etc. It happens while I am on the site, for instance, when I go from the Home tab to the All Games tab, the login screen comes up. Yet, at the top, it shows I am logged in. I also now have to login to for the cash games if I choose one of them. Checking or unchecking the Remember Me box seems to have no effect, just negotiating around the GSN site I have to continually login. Never happened before. I did submit a help ticket.

        • I have the opposite problem. I do not like to have the computer ‘remember’ any passwords. I sign in once an hour to play ChaChingo, and each time I need to uncheck the ‘remember me’. I think it should be an opt-in, instead of opt-out

  3. I notice you have once again changed Video Bingo Deluxe. I also noticed that I have to play many moe rounds before a bingo comes up. Also Wheel Of Fortune Bingo pays no prise. I wager 10,000 tokens get a bingo, and my winnings are 10,000 tokens, so I won nothing. So in this game you can only lose, not win?

  4. I am in the same position that JJ is in. Not only does it loop me back to the log in every time I want to play cash games…but as of today, there is no way out of the loop. It won’t let me play cash games at all. I just upgraded a couple of days ago and it worked fine on the first day. Now it’s very frustrating. Should I put in a ticket as well?

    • Hi Chris, yes – definitely click the “GSN Help” link at the top of the homepage and proceed to contact us with your issue. That shouldn’t be happening. 🙂
