G Suite Session Timeout

Session Timeout To Prevent Unauthorized Activities With Google Apps

G Suite Session Timeout Policy

By configuring Session Timeout, you can reduce your Google Apps exposure. Users often leave their computers unattended for extended periods and do not close applications before departing. Therefore, an unauthorized person can easily assume the user's identity within Google Apps.

By setting the session timeout, users get automatically logged out of their application after the specified time frame set by Google Apps admin
