We know that your productivity soars when you stay in longer. After all, that is why we created Shift.
If you find you keep getting logged out of your accounts in Shift - be it apps, extensions, or email - there are a few reasons why.
Shift honors the security preferences of each of our app, extension, and email partners.
After you install Shift, sometimes Chromium brings up a dialog asking you to give it permission for it to store data.
This permission is needed because Shift is based on Chromium. If the permission is not granted, it will continue to log you out on every startup.
1. Manually delete app data:
On Windows delete the following folder:
or in some cases it can also be found in this folder C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Roaming\Shift
On Mac you will need to delete the following folder (you will need to hold down the 'Option' button and choose the 'Go' menu item in Finder):
Once, you have done this, re-launch Shift and log in with your Primary Shift email account.
2. Restart Shift and sign-in, and give this dialogue permission.
