I'm using Sitecore 10.1 with Commerce 10.1 and working on a requirement to keep the website visitor always logged in (even with browser close & system restarts).

I have used the default SXA login method which accepts "Remember Me" as a parameter.

The default timeout setting is:

<setting name="Authentication.ClientPersistentLoginDuration" value="180"/>

But the end user still got logged out after a while when reopening the browser.

I have now changed the default value "00:30:00" to "3650:00:00:00" (10 years).

<processor name="CookieAuthentication" type="Sitecore.Owin.Authentication.Pipelines.Initialize.CookieAuthentication, Sitecore.Owin.Authentication" resolve="true" patch:source="Sitecore.Owin.Authentication.config">    

Is this the right way to do this.

    I am not sure about above method is right way of doing but instead you can set a custom property to Customer profile after login and whenever you close the browser and open it again, you can check if that custom property is set then do automatic login. – Gaurav Agarwal Apr 22 at 8:46
