Yes if your login depends on session data.  The normal way to control sessions is to set a cookie in the user's browser that identifies the session.  The standard session timeout is 30 minutes of no activity.  If the user comes back during that 30 minutes, then the session is still valid And the timeout is reset to 30 minutes again.

A note:  Session cookies are designed to expire when the user's browser is closed.  If any windows are still open then the session cookies are still active.  And it doesn't matter if the open window is on your site.  Any still open window will keep the session cookies active.
