Preventing Concurrent Logins


The concurrent logins system allows you to detect multiple logins from different parties to the same membership within a short time period. If you elect to use the system, all concurrent logins will be rejected if detected.

How the System Works

The system will only trigger upon a successful login. This means that if a concurrent login is detected, you know that the second user logging in had the correct credentials for the member.

For this reason, the program offers you the option to suspend the member when a concurrent login is detected. In order to suspect a member, you will need to setup an allowable threshold of detected concurrent logins. This allows you to provide some leeway for things like the same user logging in from a public network.

Activating the System

The system is activated by default, but you can turn it on/off at any time from "Members > Options".

  • Setting the "Allow Concurrent Logins?" option to "Yes" will allow all concurrent logins. This means that concurrent logins will not be rejected and the suspension threshold will be ignored.
  • Setting the "Allow Concurrent Logins?" option to "No" will activate the system, thereby preventing concurrent logins to the same membership and triggering the suspension threshold.

Setting a Suspension Threshold

The default threshold for concurrent logins is set to "3". This means that the program will allow up to three (3) concurrent logins before it suspends the member. If you want to have a "zero-tolerance" policy, set the "Concurrent Login Suspension" option to "1". This will trigger the suspension the first time a concurrent login is detected.
