Single Session Login in Laravel

I recently did this.

My solution was to set the session value when a user logs in. Then I had a small class checking if the session ID stored is the same as the current user who is logged in.

If the user logs in from somewhere else the session ID in the DB will update and the “older” user will be logged out.

I didn’t alter the Auth driver or anything, just put it on top when the user logs in. Below happens when login is successful:

$user->last_session = session_id();

To check if the session is valid I used below

if(session_id() != Auth::user()->last_session){
   return true;

As you can see I added a column in the users table called last_session
