Force logout

Hello, I have a single channel and wanted to know how I can force my login to log me out if I forget to logoff.

I accidentally left my computer logged in, and needed to connect when I got to a different location to realize that I'm still logged in at the 1st location. How do I force the logout on that 1st computer, so I can log in at my 2nd location?

Thank you, Jeff

    Hello @JeffCMG,

    Yes, you can enable a timeout that will disconnect you in case you forget to disconnect:

    Example: Setting it on 1 hour, it will disconnect the inactive session after 1 hour of inactivity.

    Can this be setup as a policy? I have a group of users that do not understand the need to disconnect inactive sessions...

    Hi @MSulewski,

    Yes, this parameter also exists in the TeamViewer policies:
