Why am I being asked for my details every time I want to download a resource?
One possible reason could be the browser mode you’re using. If you’re utilizing a mode such as Incognito or Private Window, these modes don’t store cookies that are vital for maintaining your login session. The registration process relies on these cookies to remember your login credentials and school information.
Here’s how it operates: When you initially register, a cookie is stored in your browser containing your details. As long as this cookie remains active, you won’t be prompted to log in repeatedly. However, in private browser windows or if you clear your browser cache and cookies, or if you log in from a different device like a home computer or mobile, the cookie is deleted, and you’ll be prompted to re-register.
To mitigate this, we suggest utilizing a standard browser window instead of private browsing modes and double-check your login details: make sure you are signed into Google with the same email address you registered with. This should enable the cookies to be stored and maintain your consistent login.
- Use standard browser window instead of private mode
- Verify login details (log into Google using the same email you used for registration)
- Clear Cache/Cookies: this can help resolve login issues caused by stored data. Once cleared you'll be prompted to re-register (but once done it can rectify some problems)
- Logging in from a different device (such as a home computer or mobile) can delete stored cookies
- Check with your department or school IT Department : to investigate if school's Wi-Fi is causing access problems
