This plugin helps to minimize some security concerns. It will automatically sign an inactive user out after a specified time period of inactivity.
I've been searching around for an auto-logout plugin, but it seems like everyone stopped making them a few years ago, which is odd, because WordPress certainly does not automatically log people out automatically (unless I'm missing something). I tried a few other plugins which failed dismally, but this one works flawlessly.
I'd have given it five stars if it automatically went to another page without any user interaction, but if a user leaves it on a page, it will stay on that page. But as soon as someone tries to go to another page, it will log the user out and go to the homepage, or wherever you specify in line 39 of the code, like this:
define('AUTOMATIC_SIGN_OUT_REDIRECT_ADDRESS', 'http://yoursite.com/' );
The plugin does an excellent job. Note that the configuration needs to be done by editing the plugin's code. Not complicated, but worth noting if you're not tech savvy.
