Remember my ID and Password Help
By checking this option, you will not have to enter your Login ID and password in the future -- even if you close your browser or shut down your computer. That's because your Login ID and password will be stored in a cookie on your computer. The next time you click on a NYSEG secured online service, our Web site will look for your cookie, and immediately display your account information. If others have access to this computer, you may not wish to select this option.
