Please stop logging me out

Idea

This is my laptop. At home. On my home WiFi. 

Evernote is not my bank.

I don't want "remember me for 30 days". I want to not be logged out.

Facebook never logs me out. Twitter never logs me out. Please don't log me out. I'll tell you if I want to log out.

Evernote provides bank-level security to keep your private notes private,  and part of that is the 30-day timeout.  If you can use the installed desktop version,  there is no logout because the security is provided by the operating system of whatever device you're using.  The web client can be accessed from any device at any time,  hence the added level of security.  Sorry but it's not something users can change.

The day you can seriously compare the privacy level of Evernote with Facebook and Twitter is the day you will see me quit !

That's great that Evernote provides the option of bank-level security.  However, for those of us who don't care whether our notes are private or not, why not add an option to stay logged in permanently on this device?  There's no technical reason this can't be done (just use a browser cookie), and that would be no less secure than accessing it through the desktop client, since either way I have to log in to my device before I can do anything.

Possibly not - though some people would want to be logged out,  and others would not;  and still others might change their mind and move between the two - and if someone's account got hacked and they blamed Evernote for it,  you can bet that no user would ever admit to having left their account open in a browser - even if they were aware that happened...

Anyhoo.  Rightly or wrongly Evernote designed things this way.  They'd have to recode part of the browser app to change it.  You've posted a feature request,  and anyone who agrees with you can add their vote at the top left of the thread.  If you get enough agreement they might consider doing that...
