When I or others look at my CR profile while I'm offline, my status shows that I am still logged on.

Yep, even logging out yields the same result. But it seems like it's a shorter time period then before (after a log-out). I think maybe a few months or so ago when this was brought up before, it was like an hour or so (after a log-out). But now it's maybe about 15 minutes or so of just being inactive (not browsing) on the site. Not really sure exactly on the time period, as I haven't quite done exact testings, but I think it's around that vicinity.

If I recall correctly, it takes 15 or 30 minutes for your username to switch to an offline status on CR if your preset in your settings is to show whether or not you're online. You must not be actively browsing the site or logged completely out of CR for this to happen.

If you've noticed that this goes on longer than 15-30 minutes, you may need to actively investigate if someone is accessing your account without your knowledge. If this is the case, I'd recommend changing your password and continue monitoring if this is still happening.

Gotcha, thank you to both of you. I always keep an eye on my account for changes that may indicate it has been accessed without authorization so I didn't think that's what was happening. I did happen to notice that after a while, 15 minutes or so as mentioned, that I would then appear to be offline so I thought CR might be up to something. I am curious as to why online status is set to remain online for the given time though.

Thanks again!
