  • forcing all old sessions invalid

    If a user have logged in at several computers (with the auto loggin enabled) in the past, and later on wants to get all of thoose logged out, what would the user have to do?

    Would changing the password be enough? It would invalidate the cookie, wouldn't it?
    Or is there any other better way?

    I know changing the password works. Disabling the auto login option should also work.

      Note also that all sessions automatically expire if there is no activity for the length of time on the Cookie Timeout setting (default 15 minutes.) However the 'auto login' is cookie dependent not 'session', and as Jake said changing the password should fix this, but so should logging out prior to leaving that computer.
