Concurrent logins can lead to the use of valid credentials by illegitimate personnel at the same time as the legitimate user to authenticate to the network. This could lead to multiple security issues within the organization like misuse of the user's personal information or resources to perform unauthorized actions. This can also result in the user being wrongly held accountable for the harmful actions of another user with malicious intent.
In ADSelfService Plus, when a user is logged in from multiple clients, it increases the chances of credentials being misused to perform illegitimate password self-service operations. Additionally, they can also use its single sign-on (SSO) feature to login to other applications, and access important data that they might have.
To eliminate such security risks, ADSelfService Plus provides an option to deny concurrent sessions for a user.
Note: This checkbox will be disabled when Session Expiry Time is set to Never Expires.
Attempts to log in to the ADSelfService Plus application when there is another active session in a browser or mobile app will result in the following error message.
When Deny Concurrent Login option is enabled, if a user closes a browser which has an active ADSelfService Plus session, the user will not be able login again until the idle session time expires. To avoid such inconvenience, you can configure ADSelfService Plus to reset the user session status.
