Welcome to django-session-security’s documentation!

This app provides a mechanism to logout inactive authenticated users. An inactive browser should be logged out automatically if the user left his workstation, to protect sensitive data that may be displayed in the browser. It may be useful for CRMs, intranets, and such projects.

For example, if the user leaves for a coffee break, this app can force logout after say 5 minutes of inactivity.
