Change login cookie from a default expiry of 50 years to 2 years. You can also uncheck a 'remember me' checkbox on the login form for the cookie to just last the session.

Background conversation on ckan-dev:

DR: I wonder if anyone objects to the expiry of the login cookie to be changed from 50 years to 2 years? 50 years might be appropriate for thedatahub.org, but for government sites it seems (to me) to be too lax.

Toby: is this the repoze.who cookie? If so that seems sensible to me.

Rufus: Definitely agree. I would also like to see introduction of a standard "remember me" checkbox (set to true by default). At the moment a login lasts forever (until you logout) automatically.
