To log out users from all devices when the password is changed in PHP, here we will create a good and easy approach to create the script.

Here are some major steps which we will follow,

  1. At the time of login, we will store a random number associated with the user id in the DB and session.
  2. Store IS_LOGIN key as true at the time of user login.
  3. At the time of changing the password, if you select logout from all devices it will delete a random values from DB.
  4. Create a JS file where it will check the status of the user every 5 seconds.
  5. Create a check status file where a query will check whether the random value is available or not.
  6. At last, when we will log out it will destroy all session stored data and delete the random values from DB.
