Staying Alive for Google Chrome™

Description from extension meta

Never Get Logged Out of any website due to idling!

Image from store Staying Alive for Google Chrome™
Description from store Many websites that require you to login has a session timeout. This means if you are not active for certain period of time your session will expire and when you click on a link or try to post a form next time you will be asked to login again. To keep the session active you must keep clicking on some links or keep reloading pages. This extension will do this for you in the background. Once logged in, the extension will keep requesting pages from the website at pre-determined intervals so your session will stay alive without you having to manually reload pages so you will not be kicked back to login form if you were away from you computer for long period of time. Features: * Can have multiple background rules running at the same time, keeping active sessions for more that one website. * Can see the running background requests from the extension popup menu. Can see counter of requests made per site and live countdown until the next background request. * Some websites implement idle timeout in the browser with JavaScript. This extension can defeat these type of timeouts too by periodically reloading the current page in the browser tab. * Can cancel background request from the popup window. * Can have setup rules to not accept certain cookies by the background processes. * Can include extra header/value with background and reload requests * Option to play beep 10 seconds before page reload. * Option to disable power-saving mode to prevent computer from hibernating while background requests are running. =============================== This is an Open Source project! The source code of this extension is released under the MIT Open Source license and available on github https://github.com/snytkine/staying_alive I hope other extension developers will find this project helpful when developing their own extensions.

  • (2020-01-07) Michiel Prins: Werkt wel maar sinds het gebruik zijn er veel credit card gegevens uit de browser gestolen. Plugin verwijderd en dat probleem was weer weg...
  • (2019-12-29) Hany Eryan: Awesome extension. Worked nicely with many websites
  • (2019-12-17) Federico Bellizia: Very good extension working good with Successfators and SAP cloud in general, I have only 1 improve to ask, could you put regular expression or "*.site.com" for check dynamic host name ?
  • (2019-12-07) medhat samy: لا يعمل مع المواقع التى تم تنشيطه عليها
  • (2019-12-07) Coyote Dave: It doesn't work at all. Nothing to see here just keep moving!
  • (2019-11-20) Eero Salomies: This fixed everything.
  • (2019-10-15) Tue Kyndal: Kanon - Just works...men man skal være villig til at eksperimenterer lidt med trigger og keep alive url. Ikke alle sites kan lide denne form for manipulation!
  • (2019-10-05) Rick Wilson: It works very well for me.
  • (2019-10-02) Max Ferretti: LOVED this extension, but latest Chrome update seems to have broken it. Now it no longer detects that I'm on my company's outlook page. Will re-rate as soon as it's fixed!!
  • (2019-09-16) Francisco J. López Rubio: sólo me falta que me expliquen si esta aplicación me resolverá que que se me quede la sesión de usuario de gmail en pausa
  • (2019-09-15) Jae Cho: it keeps breaking in chrome and need to repair. why is that?
  • (2019-09-12) Donna Baylis: Worked like a charm! Thank you.
  • (2019-08-21) Jeffrey Mahoney: It works if you have the exact URL in the rule. Most sites have many sub pages that don't get covered by a single rule. We need a way to add an asterisk (*) to the end of the domain name so that it covers all sub pages. This would make a truly awesome app!
  • (2019-08-15) John Cen: Great and helpful extension
  • (2019-07-03) KC Blitz: Works!
  • (2019-06-24) Jim Ramsey: This product keeps my session active and stops auto logouts. (Insert your reason here) and it works.
  • (2019-06-23) Wells Larsen: Does not work.
  • (2019-06-19) G S: A life saver due to ignorant Google engineers who refuse to allow us to change session time-out within Chrome. I would love the ability to choose only 1 tab, as sometimes the program I am running will open multiple duplicate tabs and this extension reloads them all, when really I just need the first tab reloaded. Great work, thank you!
  • (2019-06-04) Derk Wehler: Barely works. Just wanted something that can keep me from having to log in all the time, but this doesn't work well.
  • (2019-06-03) Nick Wood: What a cool little extension! Has saved me heaps of time.
  • (2019-05-17) Cyber Spy: This has saved me SO many Salesforce logins! One feature that would be god would be to not require an exact match on the trigger URL, but just any page on a site. This way, you can navigate away from your trigger page and still be confident that the background requests (to a specified page, or by default the home page) will continue
  • (2019-05-17) V P: University sites log you off quickly and it is a pain to reopen. This has been helpful so far!! Open source and hence higher rating!
  • (2019-05-06) M Anuswadh Srinivasan: Not working with oracle apex
  • (2019-04-20) Ryan McCabe: This is exactly what I was looking for!! Wish I would have found it sooner. It's even worked on my laptop when I disconnect at work, and travel home, when I log back in, it's like I never left. Thank you.

  • (2019-12-31, v:1.7) Janine Kidd: Pop-up Window for inactivity still logging me out
    I've created a couple of rules and they do seem to be working fine to reload the pages. However, I am still receiving a pop-up window that requires clicking 'OK' to keep the session open/remain logged in. Is there any way to prevent this, or automatically respond to the box with an 'Enter'?
  • (2019-12-17, v:1.7) Federico Bellizia: Dynamico third level domain
    Hi could you implement a *.site.com for third or fourth level dynamic sites? And could you add "clone rule" on rule list? There is a log with all request / times, this tool could be used to check a site uptime too :)
  • (2019-12-06, v:1.7) David Holywood: Dead?
    Nothing seems to happen at all. Installed it, created a rule (actually a few) and nothing happens...
  • (2019-11-12, v:1.7) Alfonso Villalobos: Only 2 rules active
    The extension works great, thank you. The only problem I have is that only two rules are active, but there are more than two rules. Is there a way to have more than two rules active, or am I doing something wrong?
  • (2019-11-06, v:1.7) Jordan Sullivan: doesn't work
    I've created and saved a couple of background request rules, but they simply do not work. I get this error message when I click on the chrome extension icon: "There are no background requests and no scheduled page reloads running at this time. Click on Settings button above to view or add background rules"
  • (2019-11-06, v:1.7) Jordan Sullivan: Rules save but don't work

  • (2019-10-02, v:1.7) Max Ferretti: Broken with latest Chrome update?
    Hello, I love this extension, but I think it has stopped working with the latest Chrome update. I'm running Version 77.0.3865.90 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine. I've accepted the permissions of the extension, but it no longer detects when I'm on https://outlook.office.com/mail/inbox and I am once again being logged out of my mailbox constantly. I've tried restarting Chrome and reinstalling the extension to no avail.
  • (2019-10-02, v:1.7) Richard Rogers: Offline Installer
    Is there an offline installer available for this plugin? I want to deploy it to several machines. Thanks.
  • (2019-08-07, v:1.7) Tai Nguyen: Extension may have been corrupted
    Recently, the extension keeps getting disabled with the message "This extension may have been corrupted." I can "repair" it but at re-launch of Chrome, it happens again.
  • (2019-08-06, v:1.7) Mike McNally: Settings
    how do i go to settings to add a site?
  • (2019-07-29, v:1.7) Brian Stacey: Refreshes all open tabs.
    Hello, How do I stop from it refreshing all open tabs? Have a rule set up for a single domain but it does not stick to just that domain.
  • (2019-07-19, v:1.7) Jahn F: Unfortunately doesn't work with pages that make use of # anchors
    Thank you very much for the plugin. Unfortunately some pages (like my broker) use # in their urls and also always redirect to these pages. e.g.: https://mybroker.broker.com/overview/#/market https://mybroker.broker.com/overview/#/portfolio .... Rules with urls and # are not detected and activated.
  • (2019-06-20, v:1.7) G S: So I put in 2 different links for foreground and background ....
    The countdown icon shows a blue #2, I set foreground at 3 minutes and background at 2 minutes ....it counts down through the first run but once it reaches 0 under Next run ...it just remains at zero and never resets the timer, so the count remains at zero. The first time I ran this it seems to work fine, not sure why it isn't now. Help please? :D
