Auto Logout


This plugin automatically logs out the user after a period of idle time.

If the user has been inactive for too long, then the user is automatically logged out and redirected to login page.

It tracks the users activity in both the front end and admin end.

You can set the maximum idle time to admin end general settings page.


Install this plugin is very simple:

  1. Upload the plugin’s folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it! Go to Settings/General and configure the field “Auto Logout Duration” as you want.


How do I change the idle time period?

Go and configure the time period whatever you like from your admin end general settings page.
It’s in minutes, so 3600 is equal to 1 hours of idle time.
