  • Very interesting question! There are a lot of factors that play a role in wether the user would actually stay logged in for a year. You can't guarantee that even if you wanted to. Adding a little line to say 'We keep you logged in up to a year' is actually unusually transparent, but I like it.

  • Are you sure you can do this? This isn't a regular website using cookies? When the app fails to keep the user logged-in, they are sent to this screen which promises to keep them logged in for a year.

1 Answer 1


If the duration is a year, nobody is going to track this for their own records and then keep you accountable if they are still logged in 1 year + 1 day from the initial login date. If you're set for 14 days or more, it might as well just say "Keep me signed in." save the characters, have less clutter.

However, a clarification on shorter time-spans such as "(for the rest of the day)" or "(24 hours)" might be noteworthy to the user. You can judge whether to use that by your user demographics.

  • I should clarify that my use of 14 days was an arbitrary example. @JitendraVyas has pointed out a good example from a source with a reputation.
