    What do I need to do in Sitefinity to keep a user logged in when they access my site.
    Everytime they open their browser and first have to access my site it ask them to enter their login info.
    I need it to have them automatically logged in everytime they access my site.
    Are their cache settings that need to be changed somewhere or what?

    Hi Martin,

    Please follow the screenshots to check the permissions.
    'View pages' should be set to 'Everyone'.
    1. http://screencast.com/t/SDEgDJHnPK
    2. http://screencast.com/t/x0w20kanXuGR

    You can also define permissions for certain page from here:
    http://screencast.com/t/UDkhZYnvdg

    If you want the site to be visible without log in, 'View pages' should be set to 'Everyone' on both places.

    If you need further assistance do not hesitate to contact us.

    I am not sure if my question was confusing but that is not the correct answer. It has nothing to do with the permissons. I just want Sitefinity to save my customers cookies so they do not have to relogin everytime they access the site.

    Hi Martin,

    In order to achieve your desired scenario I would advice to navigate to Adminstration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Security, then adjust Authentication cookie timeout and check AuthCookieIsPersistent. Keep in mind that you have to set and Forms cookie timeout in the web.config file of your project. Please check the following link for more information.
