New Drupal Module: Signout Sessions

Download Signout Sessions Module

Problem 
Drupal allows users to sign in from multiple devices and via multiple browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and mobile web browsers.

However, a user may forget to sign out from multiple devices and would like to access the site only from a single session. The new module in Drupal ‘signout sessions’ helps users work only on a single active session. 

Signout Sessions Module
This module allows site users to sign out from all other sessions if the sessions exist. (session for current logged in user remains)

Usage example
Suppose you have logged into your account from different browsers or devices such as desktop, mobile browser etc. simultaneously. This module helps you to log out from every other session and work only on a single sessions.

Manage or customize the URL on profile page by setting up link weight on "Account Settings Manage Display Page".
