#55343 new enhancement

Add Tooltip to "Remember Me" (WP Login Form)

Currently, WordPress' login form has a checkbox labeled "Remember Me."

Over the years, there's been some debate over the verbiage used for "Remember Me" (say, versus "Stay Logged In" or "Keep Me Logged In") and what it really means.

To eliminate any confusion, this is to request the /addition of a tooltip next to "Remember Me" in the form of a question (?) mark. Further, the tooltip can offer a security warning to all users.

The content (text) for the tooltip could be:

"Selecting Remember Me reduces the number of times you’ll be asked to log in using this device. To keep your account secure, use this option only on your personal devices."

Also, in anticipation that this enhancement request will be approved, I would like to recommend updating the /affected codex page for the login form to add a code snippet that will allow developers to change the content (text) of the tooltip to suit their needs.

The above would be a nice addition or update to WordPress' login form.

Thank you.
