I've noticed that some apps have a tendency to forget log in details.

Two in particular are the My Vodafone app and the Accor hotels app.

I can't see any obvious reason. Any ideas?

Not sure on the current Vodafone app but previous versions relied on the Safari cookies setting to accept cookies.

Apple really needs to allow, and promote, app developers to integrate with iCloud keychain. It's a real nuisance when an app prompts me for a password and I have to go manually searching my keychain for it.

These two both have the 'remember me' bit ticked. I'm not sure if it occurs when iOS updates or when the apps themselves update - or both - but they seem incapable of copying information from one version to another or, as you say, putting it in Keychain (which is a bit unreliable anyway).

The Accor one is the most annoying because it requires your membership card number (about 15 digits!) not some easily remembered log on.

No wonder people end up using the same password for everything: pretty soon you'll need an eidetic memory just to get through the passwords you need each week.

iPhones have biometric ID - why the heck don't more apps use that? My ASB one does.

The most recent Vodafone app update required a (re)login a week or two back - when did you last update?
