    If you run an internet cleanup tool regularly (Ccleaner or similar), or you've set the web-browser to "clear cookies" automatically when the browser is closed, then you'll find it necessary to log in to your websites next time. This is because when you choose "Please remember me" or "Keep me signed in", the website plants a small text file on your hard drive called a "cookie". It contains your login info for that website (in encrypted form).

    Therefore, if the cookie gets deleted, the website cannot log you in automatically.
