Remember Me


Remembers me retains the session details and has a default expiry/lifetime cookie. This cookie is valid for 15 days or the user explicitly signing-out out of the application whichever comes first.

How it works

If user login with “remember me” checked in the application’s login page, the system will create & store a “remember me” cookie in the requested browser. Subsequent attempts to open the application with a valid “remember me” cookie will automatically allows the user to be logged-in into the application without asking for credentials again.

Remember-Me is all about automated login to take place in your application by adding “remember me” cookie in the request header.

Remember-Me in WaveMaker Apps

  • After successful authentication, WM application will send a remember cookie with name remember-me if remember_me is requested by the user. The cookie value is uniquely identifies the user on subsequent attempts.
  • WM Application validate the remember me cookie with respect to username and cookie expiry.
