Description:
This modification sets a special cookie which is not cleared on logout and tracks which accounts are used on the same computer and browser. The idea is mostly similar to the Multiple account login detector (AE Detector) vBulletin modification.

Would be great to see this functionality added as a core feature/option.
Excellent Suggestion. This would certainly be a nice feature to have in the core. +1

Although the addon referred to in this thread installs ok in v1.2, does anyone know if it still works properly?

It has been a great addon for me over the years

The cookie needs to never expire, as well. We certainly get detections on some very old accounts.
(Configurable might be an idea in case others feel differently, but in any case needs a "never" option).

Lovely suggestion, would love to see this as a XF function.

Not sure how well this suggestion will stack up against EU laws, hence I disagree. IP address, ok, special cookie without the user's consent and/or knowledge, no thanks.
