Soundcloud keeps logging me out


For the past year or 2 I've stayed logged in without a problem, but recently I am constantly getting logged out. I thought this was just a small issue which would have been fixed in a few days but no it keeps happening. I now have to log in way too often and sometimes even get logged out WHILE USING THE SITE.
I do not mass clear cookies and I haven't wiped my internet history either. The only time I delete cookies is when I go into my settings and delete specific cookies from specific sites, none of these cookies ever had anything to do with soundcloud.
I have not changed any of my settings for soundcloud and there should be absolutely no reason why I should be auto logged out when Ive been logged in for at least a full year straight.

While typing this I was listening to music from my likes and I OPENED IN ANOTHER TAB my overview and it told me to log in again. Not only that but IT LOGGED ME OUT IN THE TAB THAT WAS PLAYING MUSIC!
I logged in and tried it again and I can change to overview/playlists/others in the same tab just fine, but when I open them in a new tab I need to sign in in that tab which I never needed to do before.

I am using Google Chrome if that matters at all

So I just had to update google chrome... That was my problem... I have no idea why soundloud's autologin was hindered by a slightly outdated chrome version and by all means should never actually happen unless the browser version is really really outdated to the point where it would handle any site differently... but whatever. I got to sleuth a bit, and I got to complain, and everything is fixed.
Still confused on the whole 2023 thing though lol

So I just deleted the cookies for soundcloud and tried again which didn't work... however i think I found the problem
imgur link to screenshot of cookie data (http://imgur.com/uHnkhL2 just in case the url thing didn't work)
Cookie selected "remember_me_flag"
Possible problem 1: Content is set to off
Possible problem 2: Created: Tuesday, April 11, 2023 at 3:13:06 AM
It is Monday, April 24, 2017 at around 5AM (5:11AM precisely but right at the time I am writing this part)
So the remember me cookie is set to be created almost 6 years after todays date (that is if the cookie works the way I think it does)
Really what I think based on this is that the servers that keep my account data/cookies has had its time messed up, and this would affect anyone else who's data is on those servers.

I could be wrong here with my assumptions hence the "possible problem" and "what I think" but the data that I believe is what should keep me logged in is in that imgur link.
