Frequent and Abrupt Automatic Logout from GMail

Since about September 1, 2022, mail users have experienced frequent and abrupt automatic logout from their GMail. Some of us have complained that this might be a security issue and causes inconvenience on the part of the users.

We found out from the UP System IT that the automatic logout within 24 hours is a new security feature of Google for GMail. In response to the users' reports, the IT Team increased the limit from 24 hours to 7 days. Note that there are no other options to make the limit less than 7 days.
