Automatic Logout When Closing/Exiting Browser

Post by 7thGear » Thu Feb 21, 2008 8:24 pm

Hi,
Could anyone explain how to enable automatic logout when a user simply closes down their browser. People are lazy and if they don't click the Logout button, they stay logged in which is a real security issue.

Or maybe you can disable auto login?

This means they have to login every time.

I have the same concern. We've disabled auto-login, but even so, after closing the browser, you can open another one and get into the forum from the same machine.

I'd be curious to know if there's something that can be done with the cookies to prevent this happening.

Thanks for any help!
