Sorry, I should have been clearer: The instructions above are for viewing whether the cookies are present. I've noted that some phone browsers seem to discard cookies more frequently than their desktop equivalent; I may have to write some diagnostic code to figure out what's going on.
In the meantime, go to the Manage "Remember Me" login keys
page. It shows you all the auto-logins you have active; if there's more than one entry, it's because you logged in with multiple browsers/devices. To bring your sessions to a "known state", you could delete all the keys in this dialog, log out, and clear your browser cache. When you login the next time, confirm that "Remember me" is checked, after which you should see only one entry in the above dialog.
It's my guess that your browser either (a) didn't save or (b) is discarding the "hbforums31_k" cookie that corresponds to the auto-login. Perhaps because of the privacy settings? Unfortunately it appears the Change your privacy settings
are much more limited for Chrome on the iPhone versus Android (surprise, surprise
), i.e., you can't whitelist specific sites.
I've been a Chrome fan for years, but I may give Firefox another try. They claim it's gotten faster and has enhanced privacy settings. Chrome was developed by Google; as much as I like that company, I do have the nagging feeling they are more likely to treat users as data.
Firefox has a managed login feature that might be worth trying if the native HB one isn't working for you.

Good point! By default, private mode discards all cookies once you close the browser.
