I have a subscription to a data service. It costs about $30 a year, really cheap service. My account expired last week but I noticed I was still able to access the site as a subscribed user.
When I try to login from a computer, one which I have never accessed the site before, my username/password is rejected and I am told that my account has expired.
However, if I login from my home computer, which I have used many times to access my account from, I am logged in automatically. I have the “Save Password” feature on my Chrome browser and Firefox. So when I log on to the site, my account is automatically signed-in. What do you think is causing this glitch?
Is it that Firefox/Chrome have the auto login feature? Is it because of saved cookies? A saved certificate that is allowing me to login to the site even after my account has expired?
