You can limit concurrent sessions, on a per role basis for the following criteria:
- count per user;
- count per IP adresses;
- count per country (requires the free IP Locator plugin);
- count per device classes and types, client types, browser or OS (requires the free Device Detector plugin).
For each roles defined on your site, you can also block login based on private/public IP ranges, and define idle times for sessions auto-termination.
You can also set a maximum number of IPs used for each user – useful to limit credential sharing between many people.
Sessions can report the following main items and metrics:
- KPIs: login success, active sessions, cleaned sessions, active users, turnover and spam sessions;
- active and cleaned sessions details;
- users and sessions variations;
- moves distribution;
- login/logout breakdowns;
- password resets;
Sessions supports a set of WP-CLI commands to:
- manage WordPress active sessions (list, kill) – see
