I'm just going to quote what the user reported.

I am logged out within seconds if I close my page even when I have ticked to remain logged in.

I have asked for her what device and browser she is using and can post that here once she responds back to me...but any ideas until then?

So what was causing it?

There is two sorts of browsing on an iPhone, public and private. I think my daughter had put me on private so it doesn’t save anything and blocks tracking and doesn’t save browser history. I googled the question safari not saving history.
Thanks

Another thing to keep in mind is if you logout from another browser or computer, you'll be logged out everywhere else.
