    Hello,

    Just reinstalled my server and I've been signed into to Google Chrome Incognito for over 48 hours (Cpanel/WHM) I can still access links within the panels without needing to resign in again. I don't like this. Where can I change it?

    Thanks

    Close the browser instance. From the Incognito window:

    Yeah, but couldn't a hacker stay in the panel this long if he just used Incognito? these to me seems insecure.

    He has to be logged in, to stay logged in, doesn't he? And if he's logged in, why would he bother with incognito?

    Hello,

    If a hacker has already gained access by logging on, you have more serious issues then time outs in an incognito browser session.
