blog privacy

    i have my blog pages set so that you have to enter a password to see the content. However, this appears to allow the computer access that continues even after the web page/tab is closed i.e. it's not allowing a person access, it's allowing the computer access. Thus should a public computer be used, when the internet browser is opened again (by e.g. another person), my full blog opens up without the password being required. I do not wish to make my blog 'invite only' as this is too limited. Is there any way to ensure that my blog pages are avaibable to a person who has the access code, but once the browser is closed this re-sets the page to ensure a password is required next time the browser is opened again?

    The blog I need help with is wossatrainees.wordpress.com.

    This has been mentioned in a few other forum posts. When you put in the password, the browser remembers this with a cookie, so you don't have to keep putting in the password. This means that the browser will remember, and if people share your computer under the same username (on the computer) they will get to see the posts if they go onto the blog. The cookie shouldn't be for all users on the computer, so if people log out, and then have to log in, they shouldn't see your post.

    Right now, there is no way to control how long the cookie remains for.
