Why does the WordPress tab in my incognito browser keep logging me out but my Gmail and YouTube tabs stay logged in? Is there a way to fix it if I don’t close the browser?
Do you use Incognito Mode in your web browser to keep your activities private? While this mode removes all records of pages you visited and downloads you made, it also prevents some sites from keeping you logged in. If the WordPress tab in your Incognito browser keeps logging you out but your Gmail and YouTube tabs stay logged in, you may be wondering what’s going on.
The main difference between WordPress and sites like Gmail and YouTube is that WordPress does not support Incognito Mode. This security measure keeps track of your activity on the WordPress platform. Any changes you make in Incognito Mode won’t be saved, meaning you’ll have to log in each time you open the WordPress tab.
Although it’s not possible to stay logged in while using Incognito Mode, there are a few workarounds. The first step is to switch to a regular browser window instead of using Incognito Mode. This way, WordPress will be able to keep track of your activity and you’ll stay logged in.
If you don’t want to completely switch out of Incognito Mode, you can also try changing the settings on your WordPress account. Depending on your settings, you can allow your browser to remember certain information for a certain period of time. This can help you stay logged in even in Incognito Mode.
Finally, if you’re still having issues with the WordPress tab in your Incognito browser, you can always close the browser and start fresh. This will reset all of your tabs, and you’ll be able to stay logged in.
By understanding why WordPress doesn’t support Incognito Mode and following the workarounds outlined in this article, you can ensure that your WordPress tab stays logged in while using Incognito.
