I’ve tested the plugin ‘Prevent Concurrent Logins’ but am in doubt of really using it.
The thing that bothers me the most, is that every New session is honored in favour of an Old (existing) session.
This means that a user who is successfully logged-in gets locked out as soon as someone else is logging in with the same credentials. In my opinion this not very user friendly, and actually it should work the other way around.
When a user (B) is trying to log in by using the same credentials from a user (A) who is already logged in, user B should get a warning that logging in with these credentials is not possible at the moment because someone else (user A) is using it.
This keeps user A logged in
