AutoLogoff is especially useful in shared computer environments like schools, hospitals and libraries. It adds a layer of security for users who forget to logout of Windows and makes sure computers are available for use. Supported environments include Microsoft Active Directory, Novell eDirectory and even stand alone workgroups.

Many companies hide the Windows ‘fast user switching’ feature because multiple inactive user sessions will slow down the computer eventually. With AutoLogoff it actually makes sense to use the fast user switching feature. You can combine the action "Disconnect" or "Disconnect & Standby" with a final "Logoff" action to make computers available for use, but also keep the inactive session available for a limited time should the last user return.

AutoLogoff has many configurable settings to support your preferences. E.g. it can be configured to ignore idle timeouts when a full screen Powerpoint presentation or video is played (local file or internet streams like YouTube) .

Why choose AutoLogoff?

AutoLogoff works on all supported desktop and server versions of Microsoft Windows. There is both a 32-bit and 64-bit version available.


Licensing is based on the maximum number of simultaneous/concurrent users actively using a computer. This frequently equals the total number of computers where AutoLogoff is enabled. It is subscription based. An active subscription gives you usage rights, updates and e-mail support for 1 year. AutoLogoff is priced only $ 3.20 per license (€ 3.00) per year (with a minimum amount of 20 licenses).
