    Login at friend's home, cafe, etc. then login at another PC or home, the second login will override and kick the first login. Either that or the ability to view account history and kick sessions.

    Would be even better, though granted a lot of worked, if sessions were tracked like Google Mail. If you log in on your home PC, then say log in on your work PC, you can see you are logged in at home and choose not to kick the session.

    Interesting idea, I will keep an eye out to see if anything comes of it.

    Interesting, but bit drastic, I am not certain how many people will use this.
    I don't want someone in internet cafe getting into my account by guessing my pass, and then have the ability to kick the legit session here at home out.

    a simple way out would be to show recent IPs used to access your account in the recent times.

    The latest sign in would over rule. If someone at an internet cafe use your login, you would know and login to kick him out and change your password.

    Granted that they haven't changed all the information on your account first. Depending on the latency of the server you are hosting on, that really isn't an unlikely situation.

    Yes I understand. Let's take a look at another use for the account session "kick". How about "premium" access for one account and then he/she shares it with multiple people? If xenforo can get that right, I'm all in. I think Yahoo already has this in use now.
