I have to log in to my Pocket account each time I save from Pocket Hits in Safari on iOS. How can I prevent this?
Pocket uses browser cookies to keep you logged in so you can save articles from Pocket Hits directly to your list. If you are asked to log in each time you try to save an article, it’s possible that you’re using private browsing or incognito mode in your browser where cookies are not saved. This prevents the browser from remembering your Pocket account, so you must remind it each time.
Fortunately, this is easy to fix. You can simply disable the private browsing mode.
I am subscribed to Pocket Hits but have not received them in my inbox. What’s going on?
