The main login page allows the user to enter username & password.

If a private computer is used, it's possible to remember the credentials for a given amount of time. If using a recent version of Chrome the option "permanent" might be showed, which interfaces with Chrome itself to let it store the credentials. In that case, the portal will automatically login in the future.
