Is it so that DNN today doesn't have any kind of auto logoff feature, like when the user has been idle more than X minutes? And that logoff only happens if the user select to do logoff or close the browser?

I seem to recall there used to be such a feature but could be wrong here.


And I guess it is still a problem that at least FireFox and Chrome doesn't always clear the cookies when browser is closed even though the should? How would you handle this on a more security conscious site?

Thanks.

by default, the session times out after 20 minutes. However, users will automatically logged in again, if they enabled "remember me" during login and the admin specified an appropriate value for persistentCookieTimeout in web.config.

But does DNN use Session? I've read that it no longer does and that it instead relies on the cookies and they are set to expire at the end of the session (and this we can verify by looking a each cookie created by DNN). We have disabled the "remember me" functionality.

any .Net web forms application uses sessions - it might not use session variables to support web farms (like DNN using a cookie).
if you don't use "remember me", the user should be logged out after the end of the session (when refreshing the screen)
