It tracks the users activity in both the front end and admin end.
You can setup Idle Time from WP Admin > Settings > Idle User Logout
Once you reach Idle User Logout Page, you can setup behavior of the plugin for each user\’s role.

Install this plugin is very simple:
Upload the plugin\’s folder to the
Activate the plugin through the \’Plugins\’ menu in WordPress
That\’s it! Go to Settings > Idle User Logout and configure the field \”Auto Logout Duration\” as you want.
- How do I change the idle time period?
Go and configure the time period whatever you like from your admin end general settings page.
It\’s in milliseconds, so 2 seconds is equal to 2000 ms of idle time.
- What happens if I accidentally set time to 1 Second?
It isn\’t possible. The plugin does some validation, which force user to set idle time minimum 10. If left blank, it will take default time mentioned in General Settings tab.
This plugin is no longer working properly. Tried it on my client’s site and it is super buggy. Just logs me out no matter what.
This is a very helpful plugin for my purposes, and basically does as it says… I have made some suggestions I am hoping the developer will consider implementing, but want to give it five now…
A major drawback I’ve found is that if you’ve got two windows open and you’re using only one of them, the other one times out in the background and logs you off! Then suddenly the one you are using is logged off.
It’s nice plugin but my users dont know when they logout. Could u add simple timier to sidebar whose show countdown time to logout?
Just what I was looking for! Thanks for making this plugin!!!
