I am new to proxmox I just started using it. But the web GUI interface asking me for the password to log in again and again after some time interval. Does anyone know the fix?

Try to disable all browser plugins and flush the browser cache.
Same here, it worked perfectly but then, all of a sudden, this started happening, did you get any luck with disabling pluggins and that stuff?
I was having the same issue.. I did the steps below and it solved the problem

# pvecm updatecerts -f
# systemctl restart pveproxy
# cleaned browser cache

After this, no more random login screen
