Why doesn’t keep me signed in?

When you sign in on, be sure to check the box that reads “Keep me signed in.” As long as you have cookies enabled, the website will remember your account on that browser.

Please keep in mind that social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages use their own browsers with sign-in requirements that are beyond AD PRO’s control. (For example, if you browse Twitter on your phone, and click on a AD PRO link, the article will open in Twitter’s in-app browser.) Each of these browsers has varying abilities to remember sign-in information (or “cookies”), which may result in your having to sign in again.

Similarly, if you click on a AD PRO link through an email or newsletter, and the article opens in a new browser window, you may need to sign in again. Once you have done so, you won’t have to sign in again in that window.

I am trying to subscribe, but the system says I already have an account. How do I fix this?
