Having to log back into Adsense more

Keeps happening - never used to.

Over the last few weeks I've had to log back into Adsense about 4 times. Doesn't sound like a lot, but I can't remember ever having to do it before.

Gives me the fear every time - thinking for some reason my account might have been locked or stolen.

Is anyone else getting this?

I don't actually have to log in, but previously (if I remember correctly) when I would go to adsense.google.com I would automatically be redirected into my account, whereas these days I'm taken to google.com/adsense/start where I have to click "Sign in" at the top right to get there, even though I'm logged in to my Google account.

Is your login safe? consider changing password. It usually happens when I introduce more devices into my daily use. Or maybe you logged in another person's account via Google, and that person requested log out.

Thanks for the replies.

I'm thinking it might actually be connected to all the GDPR testing I've been doing and messing around with cookies. Might be time to change my password though.

Use two step auth. You'll be fine.

Interesting. I'm having no issues. Nothing out of the ordinary with either Edge desktop, Edge 42 mobile, Chrome 67 desktop or Chrome 66 mobile.

Never bothered me. I suspect there's (if not previously, is now) a timeout/activity factor in play.
