If I logged in admin side by chrome.then if when I logged-in successfully in Mozilla for same magento instance in magento2.1 then I automatically log out in chrome and throw message Someone logged into this account from another device or browser. Your current session is terminated.

Why does this happen in Magento 2.1?

  • Yes this is for Security Proposed if one user login than other User Login with same id than your current session is terminated.

To disable this feature go to

Stores > Configuration > Advance > Admin > Security


change value of Admin Account Sharing to Yes.


Follow below attached images screenshot to enable admin account sharing options from Magento admin panel. Either way you can go to Magento 2 admin>

Store>> Settings>> Configuration >> Advanced >> Admin >> Security and change ADMIN ACCOUNT SHARING Options to YES

enter image description here


If you prefer to run commands instead of going to admin panel or changing in database:

php bin/magento config:set admin/security/admin_account_sharing 1

Also, you can fire direct SQL query in Database as follows:

update `core_config_data` SET value = 1 where `path` = 'admin_account_sharing' and `scope` = "default"
