Showing online when still in bed

I received a text from a friend on mse this morning asking why I was up so early which was puzzling to say the least. I know when you log off it can take a while to register but when I was shown as online it was more than 24 hours after I logged off.

I was thinking how suspicious it might look to a potential date when told you haven’t been on the dating site for days when the “who’s online” is showing you present and correct.

Good Morning CHIOG,
Is it possible that somebody knows or has guessed your password? Just a thought.

It depends on whether you physically log out of the site or just switch to another web page.

If you do the latter you will still be shown as logged in for several hours after you have left.

Most sites are slow logging you out but this one is slower than most.

I just looked and a wasn’t there but looked back a few minutes later and I’m showing online.

Tsunamiwarrior I was not online then but I can verify you were not showing at 11.40am. Hope this helps.
