Blocking or disabling the cookies can block the data and your login information from particular sites. If we clear cookies and site data upon closing the window, Chrome will ask for login every time we launch the browser.

Check Chrome’s sign-in Settings

Google Chrome can save and remember the password in its local database and online sync. Ensure that you have allowed the sign-in option for the Google accounts in your Chrome so that you do not get signed out.
