Depends what you have it set for.
ACP > General tab > Load settings > Session length

Session length is a global setting and is therefore the same for all users of the board.

Depending on their browser they can be automatically logged in when visiting the board.

Where are you seeing this "Remember me"?
PhpBB does not have any such setting. The one Oyabun1 is referring to is labeled "Log me on automatically each visit".
