Provided you have cookies enabled
in your browser, when you visit a page on the BirdGuides website that requires
you to log in, the login page automatically fills in your email address, and invites you to supply the matching password. This restricts
access to your BirdGuides account to password-holders only.
If you tick the "Remember my password" box when you log in, both your email address
AND your password (disguised as asterisks) will thereafter be
filled in automatically on that computer, and all you need to do to log in is to
click the Login button.
You should NOT tick the "Remember my password" box if the computer you use is in a
public place or used by other people, particularly if you are a subscriber to
any of our services, as they will then be able to access your BirdGuides
account and settings.
The "Remember my password" box only applies to the use of the BirdGuides website on
the particular computer you are using, and does not affect other websites or the way you
access the BirdGuides website from other computers. The setting will be lost if your
BirdGuides cookie is removed or expires on the computer in question.
