Laravel – Auth Session not expiring after browser close

Posted by: admin November 30, 2017 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am having a problem about sessions, or cookies, I didn’t understand the reason.

I log on to my site with Auth::attempt($userdata, false), which means Laravel should not remember my login, but it remembers whether I use true or false in attempt function.

in app/config/session.php, variables are determined as

'lifetime' => 120,

'expire_on_close' => true,

Also, when I log in with Auth::attempt($userdata, true), 'Auth::viaRemember()' function returns false.

Edit: Question solved. Cause of the problem is Chrome. See my answer for detailed information.

Answers:

It is a desired behavior to be logged in after you re-open the browser.
You can change this in app/config/session.php by setting

'expire_on_close' => true,

Answers:

I have solved my own question. It appeared that the problem is Chrome’s problem. It continues to work in background, so the cookie values do not disappear. I tried my app with firefox and works perfectly.
