Persistent connection with Samanage

If I'm logged in to Samanage and the browser is closed without logging out, how long does Samange hold the connection open before it is purged ? I've discovered that I can re-open the browser, go to the Samanage login screen and simply click the 'Log in' button without entering any authentication details and I'm taken to my dashboard page.

Whilst this is a time saver for me, if a colleague of mine happened to use my machine to access the Samanage website, then they would be logged in as me instead of themselves. This could be a security issue if they weren't in the 'administrator' group.
