Automatic Community Website Login

Does the GitHub Community website automatically log you in? It has automatically logged me in today. How can, and why would the website automatically log me in? My browser is not storing a password, and I did not request for the website to remember me.

Hi @george4580,

Your GitHub Community Forum account is linked to your github.com account in that signing in here is done via SSO through your github.com account. So, yes, your sign in is automatic and based on your github.com log in. If you were logged into github.com when you clicked “sign in” here in the forum, you would have been automatically signed into the forum. 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

But if you checked the small box at the bottom of the registration form you will be automatically connected.
