Now View And Manage Active User Sessions On WordPress

Now WordPress 4.1 “Dinah” allows you to delete only your own logged in sessions on other devices. In this lesson we will be showing you how you can extend this feature to make it work for all logged-in user sessions on your website. 

Yes, by default you are just limited to only being able to destroy your own sessions and you cannot destroy them individually.

But with the help of new User Session Control plugin you can view and manage all users sessions from a custom admin screen.

Start by installing User Session Control plugin in WordPress

Upon activation, visit your admin area dashboard Users -> Sessions page. It allows site administrators to view and manage all sessions by all users on an individual basis:

  • Displays a custom “God view” screen of all active user sessions User Session Control 1
  • You can sort sessions by user, role, creation date, expiry date or IP addressUser Session Control 2
  • You can quickly and easily destroy sessions you think may be a security risk.
