Hiya

I just set up the protection on my home mac. I've logged via work - how long does the login persist?

Some specifics would be nice (but not too specific, some forms of protection are not appropriate for the forum)

If youíre talking about basic authentication then its browser specific as the browser caches the login credentials. in theory when you close the browser its supposed to clear the cache ... but then thatís a whole other story especially if we talk about IE.
