Device and session limitations

Device and session limitations will help you discourage your customers from sharing their account password instead of sharing their subscription.

In Payway Admin, you define a specific number of allowed active sessions per account. Then, when the customer tries to log in and this number is exceeded, you can react to this fact in your own SSO implementation with the strategy you think is the best. For example, a simple strategy we have implemented in the Payway Portal (My account) is to present a dialog to the customer with an option to log out of one of the other devices to continue the login process. Different strategies could be to log out all active sessions before proceeding and perhaps also issue a password reset for the account.

Administrative views for sessions are available for the customer as a self-service feature and customer service staff. Remember that you can always try new features in our Payway stage environment.
