automatic captive portal login?

Hi all.

Since a couple of releases, Gnome shell on Fedora has captive portal detection; this actually works quite well and one can enter one's credentials to log into the network.

It gets tedious to enter the same login every time you wake the laptop back up from sleep and your previous login has expired.

Is there a way to automate this? That is, some way to store the login information and to automatically enter it when a captive portal has been detected? (I know I can use the browser's password storage for this and just ignore the builtin gnome portal detection, but that is a bit cumbersome too.)

So; has anybody managed to achieve that?

(I am on Fedora 24 by the way.)
