    verification of signed in status depends on cookies.

    Yes, Have them set their browsers so it doesn't delete the cookies from your website when they close their browser.
    If a user clicks "keep me signed in" and they don't delete cookies when they close their browser than they will stay signed in for 30 days.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
