Learn about what is considered in determining length of your account session.
Episode #11-10 released on October 11, 2020
If you are watching my show, chances are, you have one or more accounts online. You probably have at minimum an email account and YouTube account. This means you are at least aware that you have to periodically have to login, log out and log back in. However, sometimes you have to log back in, despite never logging out, why is that?
As a programmer the answer comes down to security and convenience. The type of website we are creating often dedicates what kind of session design we will be using for the website. Certain kinds of websites like banks are dangerous to leave unlocked, whereas your Facebook account needs to be logged in to be able to like, share and comment with all over the Internet. Your bank account will be logged into for minutes, but a Facebook account can be logged into indefinitely.
Is there a way to change the duration of the session, regardless of what type of website it is?
