Inactive Logout


Make your WP account secure from snoopers, friends to protect your data by assuring auto log out system within a certain defined time. This will help you keep safe from any users using same machine to access your account in case you are away and forgot to logout and kept your site logged open.

Simple but works efficiently. Nothing much to explain on plugin use. As its simple to use. You can find inactive settings under settings menu in admin dashboard.

Please refer to FAQ section if you have trouble activating plugin from version 1.6.0

Please check changelog to see what is added from version 1.3.0

Some Feature Highlights.

  1. Change idle timeout time.
  2. Count down of 10 seconds before actual logout. You can remove this feature if you dont want it.
  3. Add only Wake Up! message where user will not logout but instead a wakeup message will be shown upon inactive.
  4. Custom Popup Message.
  5. Choose to use concurrent logout functionality derived from prevent concurrent logins by Frankie Jarrett. Thumbs up here too !
  6. Redirect to a Different Page instead of Popup box. Create a page such as timeout page and add your content there by creating a blank template or style it as you wish according to your theme.
  7. Multiple User Role Configurations for individual timeout and redirects.
  8. Clean UI
  9. Simple to use
  10. Multi browser tab support: Means that logout will not happen even if the user has multiple browser tabs opened and is active in certain browser tab.
  11. Multisite Support: Override all sites with one setting.

In order to style dialog boxes you can use css classes. Also, works in frontend view as well.

Filter Hooks
1. add_filter(‘ina__redirect_message’, ‘callback’ );
– For changing “You have been logged out because of inactivity. Please wait while we redirect you to a certain page…” this message.
