eBay logged-in status persistence

  1. log into eBay
  2. reboot
  3. eBay logged-in status forgotten

eBay logged-in status used to persist after reboots. My earliest record of a behavioral change dates to 1/23/2022. Since at least that time, perhaps far longer, my eBay logged-in status only persists is if there is a Brave session restoration, e.g., after a Win10 crash due to power loss.

Brave 1.35.103 Chromium: 98.0.4758.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I thought this behavior a security change from eBay, but since I recently noticed eBay session restoration following a crash, e.g., power loss, for the second time, I now attribute the behavior to a Brave browser change, again, perhaps for security. That Brave tab restoration restores eBay login status suggests that if the “forgetting” is deliberate, e.g., for security, that “security fix” seems incomplete because the eBay logged-in status can be restored otherwise, i.e., not entirely forgotten. I might prefer that eBay logged-in status is recalled. Perhaps the behavior is unintentional.
