Why do I have to log into StarNewsOnline.com every single month?

Q. Why do I have to log into the website every single month?

A. The system responsible for logging people in and out of StarNewsOnline.com sites, run by a company called Press +, works off browser cookies. When someone signs in, his or her browser gets assigned a cookie — a small piece of code — which stores that information in their browser. Typically, that will expire after 30 days.

Some people have browser settings that say to clear all cookies (or clear the cache) on closing the browser or after a certain amount of time. So if the cookies are cleared, the browser has no way to remember the person was signed in and will view each visit as new.

In most computer-based Web browsers, to access the settings menus used to control your cache, cookies, and history, press Ctrl-Shift-Delete (Windows) or Command-Shift-Delete (Mac). If that doesn’t work, click here to find more information about how to clear your cache or access related settings.

    I never log in or pay to view Star News. There is a way around it. The reporting is not worth paying for.
