How To Limit WordPress Login To One Device At A Time?

Earlier we have discussed about making WordPress to automatically logout idle website users by showing them a customizable message. We have also discussed about preventing concurrent logins to disallow users from staying logged into the same account from multiple places.

Now today this lesson is about new WordPress plugin called Only one device login limit. It simply limits WordPress user login to one device at a time. Hence, if someone or the user itself tries to access admin area from some other device, he will not be allowed to login.

Users may stay active only from one device at a time. The plugin allows site admin to setup ‘Already login message’ for the users trying to access admin area from other devices.

In-case, if the user stays inactive for long time, then the session will expire (user will be automatically logged out) and login will start to work from same device or other device.

Start by installing ‘Only one device login limit’ plugin in WordPress

The plugin also tracks users activity like user status such as active, in-active, last active time etc. You can view this on your admin area dashboard Users -> All Users screen under new “User Status” column added by this plugin.
