What is the Users Sessions Management Module?
The Users Sessions Management module in the WP Security Audit Log plugin allows you to:
- See who is logged in to your WordPress and WordPress multisite networks,
- See the latest change of every user session in real time,
- Manage and block multiple sessions for the same WordPress users,
- Get alerted of multiple same user sessions via email,
- Terminate individual or all sessions remotely,
- Terminate idle WordPress sessions and more!
Viewing Who is Logged in to Your WordPress and WordPress Multisite Network
Click on the Logged In Users to see all the details about who is logged in to your WordPress (existing WordPress users’ sessions), such as from where they are logged in, the latest change the user did, when the session was created and more as seen in the below screenshot.
Viewing logged in Users on WordPress Multisite
A drop down menu on the top left corner of the logged in users table will be available when on a WordPress multisite network, as seen in the screenshot. Use the menu to filter the user’s sessions per website. By default the plugin shows all the logged in users on the network (network-wide).
Managing simultaneous sessions for the same WordPress user
You can also fully manage WordPress users sessions with the Users Sessions Management module in the WP Security Audit Log. You can limit the number of simultaneous logged in sessions a user can have, block multiple sessions for the same user and much more. Refer to the Managing logged in WordPress users sessions documentation for more information.
Terminating idle logged in WordPress sessions
If you have a lot of users on your WordPress website most probably you also have a lot of idle sessions. These are mostly caused when the user does not log out of the session. Idle sessions can be a bit problematic sometimes, so to avoid having issues with them see how you can automatically terminate idle logged in WordPress sessions with the WP Security Audit Log plugin.
Terminating all logged in WordPress users sessions
If you are suspicious about a specific change on your WordPress, or unfortunately you’ve been hacked and you want to log out all users instantly you can do so by clicking the Terminate All Sessions button in the top right hand side of the screen in the Logged in Users menu node. This will terminate all of the users’ sessions but not yours, so you can retain the session and do all the necessary troubleshooting.
