Enforce a limited session lifetime for all policies
The session lifetime determines the maximum idle time of a user's Okta session, and when the session expires.
Shorter session lifetimes reduce the risk of malicious parties gaining access to a user's session.
The default session lifetime is two hours. A countdown timer appears to users when there are five minutes of session time remaining.
