Why do I have to constantly log in to the Android TiVo app?

    I find this very annoying. Is there some setting that will keep me from having to login all the time? Does it have fingerprint login? You would think they were guarding fort Knox with all the security security they seem to have on this app.

    EVERY time or frequently? iOS is frequently and yes, annoying.

    Flakey behavior combined with incessant re-login has led me to pretty much abandon all hope that I can use the android app.

    What version of Android are you running, you shouldn't have to log back in that often. Maybe every few days if you haven't used it frequently.

    Well it probably is every few days. I typically only use it once a week or less. Version 9 I think. I have an original Google Pixel phone.

    sweet home, al
    only tivo asks me to log in once a week - not my bank, xfinity, kroger, target, walmart, wendy's, burger king, mcdonald's, the weather - and a few of those have my card numbers.

    poor design, period.

    Not sure why but the iOS app is just as bad, if I go more than a few days without opening it I’ll have to sign in again too.

    My iOS app can't even connect to my Tivo Bolt Vox TE3 since the latest update was pushed to it a few days ago.

    Not more annoying than Yahoo Email. They too think they are guarding fort Knox. (Which may have no gold acc to some conspiracy theorists)
