Anyone else running Yosemite experiencing their cookies getting deleted automatically each night, or every 24 hours?

I have checked all my preferences, and nothing suggests its a user preference, I fear its something more than this.

I manually clean my website data twice a month, and run MacKeeper once a month, so know that after I carry out this maintenance I do need to log back into my various sites, and I always tick that little box to keep me signed into these site I frequent.


Normally I keep signed into these sites until my next manual clean up, but what is happening right now, is each and every day, I need to log into all of my frequented websites, and its driving me crazy.

I am running an iMac 27" with Yosemite if that helps?

No, this has not happened to be with any of the versions of OS X from Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks and now Yosemite..

Manually cleaning stuff is fine, but I would avoid Mackeeper like the plague..

Which browser are you using?

MacKeeper is more than fine, the negative hype is unwarranted.

Safari.

Sorry Mickyfin…but we have lots & lots of user experiences here to prove MacKeeper is junk!!!:(

In almost all instances:

- MacKeeper installed = lots of problems
- Uninstall MacKeeper = problems go away

Moral of this story…don't install MacKeeper in the first place!:)

I'm not saying that MacKeeper is necessarily the source of the problem(s) you are having currently. It's just a great idea to not have it installed.:)

I understand, thanks for the advice, but, I have been using MacKeeper over a year without any problems whatsoever, its only recently I have come across the cookie issue, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why, or what is deleting my cookies each night all of a sudden.

Well its your machine, do what you will with what is installed on there..

All I can say about Yosemite and Safari is that there is nothing in there to delete cookies routinely.
