Did you end up tweeting them again and linking them this thread asking if they could allow us to stay signed into our account until we manually sign out? Signing us out every few hours or so is annoying and probably 99% of users are frustrated as well.

Agreed this is so annoying, I had been meaning to create a thread on here about it for a while, 

 

Perhaps if they choose not to implement any of the suggestions here they could maybe update their smartphone app (last update 5 years ago) which is pretty broken and un-usable last time I tried. Using the Australia post website and app is like a dream in comparison.

Man I thought I was the only one. I use there tracking site everyday for years, there is no way its 24h session reset now. I'm re-logging in at least every 1-2 hours.

 

 

 

And this recent update has some nice additions, but (at least for me) is so much slower loading, and now also does this force page refresh every time to, and appears there is no way to open a single tracking anymore, pretty frustrating.

I have not bothered mentioning it to them.

 

With the change at aliexpress I seldom get numbers that do anything on the NZ post site so loading up my parcels with what they are as the name is not as useful as it once was so am hardly using it now.

It's also annoying when you click sign in on the tracking page and then have to choose 1 of 5 different sign in portals

I was using the NZPost website today. At a guess I'd say it stays logged in for 3-4 hours, then you have to log in again. The cookies for the auth.nzpost.co.nz domain say the cookie expires "when the browsing session expires", but I don't know what that means precisely.

I’ve notice on NZPost website that there is server maintenance tomorrow morning. I wonder if that will be where they will fix this annoying issue but highly unlikely.

+1 this is such an annoying issue.

It also used to keep tracking details for parcels I loaded up without logging in to the website (I assume via cookies or something). This tracking now seems to only work once and is not retained across sessions.

I understand the security intent but unfortunately all this does is make me not want to use the NZ Post website for tracking.

This is me also.  I used to track items sold/bought on TradeMe via the NZ Post website, with the ability to hold tracking numbers in the system for two weeks.  Now the numbers disappear after a matter of hours rendering the website pointless for my use scenario.

 

If you can't enter a number once and follow it through to delivery 1-3 days later, one wonders who exactly is going to use the website.

Their whole site is like an ongoing car accident. The UX is awful. Unintuitive and slow as a wet week. Logs you out every 4 mins. It's been no good since they decided to 'upgrade' the site right around the first lockdown, it was just getting OK - a bit faster & more reliable, and now they've ruined it again. Surely they have more important things to spend money on at the moment.
