           Summary: 'Keep me logged in' checkbox should specify expiry
                    time (if any)
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: User login and signup
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

If a user checks the 'Keep me logged in' box when logging in, it only does so
for a finite amount of time, about a month by default. The label does not
reflect this - by not specifying any time period, the expectation is that the
login will last indefinitely, which is simply not the case and has already led
to some confusion amongst users.

While the English Wikipedia modified their own interface message to specify the
time period, that clarification should be added to core.
