Client requires authentication at every launch

Expected behaviour

After authenticating once with the browser based scheme it should remember the credentials and use that when starting the client the next time.

Actual behaviour

It always asks for credentials at every launch of the OS.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Start nextcloud client first time
  2. Browser opens that requests login
  3. Authenticate
  4. Close client
  5. Reboot OS and start at step 1.

I reopened the bug. I don’t know enough details to give you more hints. I think there could be something different because if it were the case for all mac users, there would be much more reports. Perhaps try with a different server, if that happens there as well, so you can link it to the client only or if the server is possibly involved as well.

Question is as well, do you use two-factor-authentication. After a login, there should be an app password, does this app password still exist (security settings on your personal settings page)?
