Answer

Laravel authentication offers remember me functionality out of the box.

In order to use it you need to do 2 things:

  • add remember_token column in your users table - this is where the token will be stored
  • pass true as a second parameter of Auth::attempt() to enable remember me behaviour

If you do this, Laravel will generate a token that will be saved in users table and in a cookie. On subsequent requests, even if session cookie is not available, user will be authenticated automatically as long as remember-me cookie is there.

You can find more details and example in the docs: https://laravel.com/docs/5.1/authentication#remembering-users
