Buyers and sellers who close their internet browsers often found themselves having to log back into eBay...even if they'd only been gone a couple of minutes.
That little pain is apparently a thing of the past.
Now, when you sign in to eBay, you can choose to stay signed in for 24 hours. Even if you’ve closed your browser, if you return to eBay within 24 hours, you won’t have to sign in again unless you’re changing your personal information (such as your password or email address) or if you signed out after your last visit.
The new default option is to let you stay signed in for 24 hours but if you prefer to sign in every time you open a browser session, you can uncheck the “Keep me signed in” box. If you use a public or shared computer, eBay recommends that you uncheck the box.
Whether you are signed in for 5 minutes or 24 hours, as always, eBay says it will protect your account and keep it secure with a secure sign-in security measures.
