How can i end the user session when the browser closes. I have noticed sometimes when i close the browser and reopen it still shows me as logged in but all my session variables are gone. How can i do one of the following

Keep the seession objects or log the user out so they have to log back in.

Thanks

Hi,
You can set both Session and Authentication time outs to the same value, like the following:

In web.config:

<sessionState mode="YourValue" timeout="30" />
<authentication mode="Forms">
          <forms timeout="30" moreValues="","","" />
</authentication>

Are you using Forms authentication? If so, when you save your auth cookie, SetFormsAuthCookie(), set persistent cookie to false. Then, when they close the browser the cookie is gone and they will have to log in again. The syntax is very close to this: SetFormsAuthenticationCookie(cookie, false);
