Hi Dennis

There are deeper experts here however my thinking is there is no more “remember me” as there will no longer be a “login”.  One will simply connect to a service at which point DID Auth will occur. You will already be authenticated via the device you are using to control your private keys. Ideally DIDs are pairwise unique so I guess a site could use your DID for preferences and so forth.

Remember me and cookies a hack to solve user experience issues around user logon and sessions.

Not sure what to say about tracking. I think there needs to be consent and withdrawal of consent at least :) ... maybe DIDs can help with user control of consent.

Hello All,

I have quite a general question on which I am yet to find an answer anywhere on the github repo.

How does this group see DIDs and specifically DID Auth interacting with traditional browser cookies, specifically my questions are:

  *   If a user checks the "remember me" button on a site which uses DID Auth, what would be the implementation flow?
  *   In the scenarios where a site uses various third party analytics systems which set tracking cookies, is there a better way to do this using DIDs?
