Local doesn't keep me logged in, every time I restart the app

Bug Summary

I can log in to Local successfully, but every time I close the app and reopen it, I’m not logged in.

What I noticed is when I log in these files are created in C:\Users***\AppData\Roaming\Local

  • profiles-hub.json
  • hub-api.json

When I close the app, the two files are still there.
When I open the app the two files are deleted.

The same bug happened to other people:

Steps to reproduce

  • Log in to Local using the top left menu
  • Log in is successful
  • Close the desktop app
  • Open the desktop app
  • I’m not logged in

Environment Info

  • Microsoft Windows 11 Version 23H2 (build SO 22631.2506)
  • Local Version 8.1.0+6514
  • The app is installed selecting the option “Only for me”, so it’s in C:\Users***\AppData\Roaming\Local

Supporting info

local-lightning.log (40.0 KB)

I wonder if this is to make sure people don’t abuse the live link feature (which you have to be logged in for)? Maybe?

Hi @aubreypwd and @uau!

Interestingly I can’t replicate this on Mac. I tried a couple of times but I always stay signed in :thinking:

I will share this with our Devs though and see if we can figure anything out here. Thank you for your patience and involvement here in the forums!
