Laravel now includes the useful
logoutOtherDevices method on the
SessionGuard class (
auth()->logoutOtherDevices()). This means, with ease, you can invalidate all other sessions for a user's account. One use-case for this is ensuring that multiple people cannot log in and access the same account simultaneously. For a second example, maybe a user accidentally signed into their account on a library computer, but forgot to logout. No problem; you can offer the functionality to click a button and instantly invalidate that library session.
