Please ask VS to get their act together and reinstate user privacy. Despite me, and I suspect many others, having configured my profile's privacy settings to not show my online status, that link still shows me as online.VS has flagged a link to see what members are on line at that moment:
Many browsers offer an option to delete cookies automatically or do that as a standard (DuckDuckGo). So you would have to logen every time when you open the browser and visit the website. In DuckDuckGo there is an option to add a website to a whitelist if you want to stay logged in.
The new format is actually better at letting you log in silently as it states on line members may include hidden visitors ,the old format actually gave the number of hidden visitors.Thanks Ade. Just checked the list and you're not on it, so I presume I'm not too.
