Automated sign on enables the user himself if he would like to save the login. This function is based on a secure cookie containing a generated password.

Enable "Save session" by default
If you decide to save the login you do not need to log in constantly depending on what the timeout is set to.
Observe! The cookie needs to be send encrypted in order to keep it secure. The function requires SSL on the whole website or parts of it. see tutorial (in swedish) Lathund SSL.
Decide how long time period a login is valid for. For instance if you have been on vacation for 7 days you will need to log in again upon returning to work since you have been inactive for 7 days.
