Why Origin forgets username and password all the time?

★★ Novice

Steam has never asked me to re enter my user and password.

 

Origin forgets username and password every few days, it never happens with Steam.

 

I don't play many games on Origin so can't be bothered to re enter my user and password in Origin everytime I restart my computer

Why has this been marked as the accepted solution?

 

The solution I accept is to stop using Origin.

late reply but this showed up as the first result on google so...

a workaround/fix for this is:

enter another userid/password, click the keep signed in checkbox and then click sign in. It will obviously fail, but when you enter the correct user/password and sign in it will save the 'new' user and password properly.

 

that worked for me...

I'm locking this thread due to it's age.

 

If Origin is not remembering your password then this would most likely be a system issue @PeteRoy

Can you see if the following helps:

 

Ensure that you are running Origin as administrator, You can do so by going directly to you origin folder which is generally located at C:\Program Files\Origin Games. Run the origin.exe in this folder with a right-click -> run as administrator. 

 

Can you try enabling Log in verification within Origin to see if it helps:  Origin menu>Account and Privacy>Security> Log In verification> Turn On

 

This should ensure that your device is set as a Trusted Device and hopefully, your details will be remembered.
