Remote Sign-out in Zoho

General | November 5, 2008 | 1 min read

Have you ever been through a scenario where you logged into an online application at your friends house to show him something exciting and later on your drive back, you start to wonder whether you really logged out of the application later?

I am not sure about you, but I certainly had scenarios like these as I don’t tend to carry my laptop with me most of the time. If you are like me, the latest feature in Zoho Accounts is going to be really useful. It lets you sign-out remotely.

To see how this works, go to https://accounts.zoho.com and select the ‘User Sessions’ link on the left (the last one). It shows your previous sessions that could be active.

By default, Zoho Accounts automatically ends all sessions older than 7 days. Active sessions for the past 7 days are listed in the sessions screen (including the current session) with additional information like Start Time, IP Address etc. You have options to end individual sessions or end all sessions (excluding the current one).

This way, even if you forget to signout at your friends place, you can take care of it when you get home.

There are some features we roll out in our apps but don’t talk about them in the blogs. This is one such feature that was rolled out few months back. If you explore, you’ll probably notice some other features/enhancements. Did you find anything interesting?

    When a user who has signed in to Zoho via Google or Yahoo logs out, we can show a logout page which says (assuming a Google user),
    “Logged out from Zoho. You have signed in to Zoho using your Google account. To logout from Google also also click on “

    It would be nice if the Zoho session could somehow be tied to the Google/Yahoo session, assuming that that the user signed to Zoho using Google OpenID or Yahoo BBAuth.
