"Keep me logged in" extended to one year/ms

This page is a translated version of the page "Keep me logged in" extended to one year and the translation is 14% complete.

On Tuesday, 16 August 2016 around 15:00 UTC (8:00 a.m. PDT), the login sessions were changed so that they can last up to one year on Wikimedia sites. This will only affect users who select the option to "Biar saya kekal log masuk" on the login screen. Currently, this option lasts only for 30 days.

Users who do not check "Biar saya kekal log masuk" will not be affected by this change. Anda dapat keluar lebih cepat dengan mengklik butang "Log keluar" di sudut kanan atas skrin Anda, atau dengan menghapuskan cookie untuk tapak web.

Apa alasan untuk perubahan ini?

Semasa pengguna secara eksplisit memilih sesi yang lebih lama, terdapat gunanya melakukannya selama lebih dari 30 hari. Longer login lengths mean fewer problems with editors being logged out unexpectedly. The login length was previously much longer, and was shortened a few years ago to just 30 days as part of some other changes to how we handle cookies. Many users have requested a return to the longer length since then.

Does this affect cookies that are not related to logging in?

No, it does not.

Di wiki mana ini dikenakan?

This change applies to all WMF wikis in all languages, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Meta, MediaWiki.org, and more.

If my wiki shows the "Biar saya kekal log masuk" time period, will that be accurate?

Most wikis are using the default message, which says only, "Biar saya kekal log masuk", without specifying the maximum length of time. In that case, the message will remain the same.

If your wiki is currently using the message parameter, then the message will show the new length automatically. You will not need to change anything. Any wiki can choose to show the length by editing MediaWiki:Userlogin-remembermypassword to say, "Keep me logged in (for up to $1 {{PLURAL:$1|day|days}})". The software will automatically insert the correct length of time where the "$1" is in this phrase. Jika mahu, Anda dapat menyalin dan menerjemahkan contoh dari Wikipedia bahasa inggris untuk wiki Anda.

If your wiki is using a custom local message that has the time hard-coded (e.g., "Keep me logged in for a month", without the "$1" parameter), then please change this immediately to use the parameter instead. Using the parameter means that your users will always get accurate information about this setting.

Will existing login sessions be affected immediately?

Existing sessions will not be affected. Users will not be logged out early, and existing sessions will not be extended. This change will take effect the next time you login with "Biar saya kekal log masuk" checked.

Does this comply with the Privacy Policy?

Yes, the Legal team has verified that this change complies with the Privacy policy.
