Use below code:

$ObjectManager= \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$context = $ObjectManager->get('Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context');
$isLoggedIn = $context->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH);
return $isLoggedIn;

The best practice is to use Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context to check the customer logged in or not. And, avoiding using Object Manager directly.

For example:


namespace Vendor\Customer\Block\Account;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context;
use Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context as HttpContext;

class Customer extends Template
     * @var HttpContext
    protected $httpContext;

     * @param Context $context
     * @param HttpContext $httpContext
     * @param array $data
    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        HttpContext $httpContext,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        parent::__construct($context, $data);
        $this->httpContext = $httpContext;

     * Checking customer login status
     * @return bool
    public function customerLoggedIn()
        return (bool)$this->httpContext->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH);

If you create() the session, exactly you can force to get the current customer session with full page cache enabled. But i am not sure what principle it is using.

    $app = $ObjectManager->get('Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context');

    if ($app->getValue('customer_logged_in')) {

        $customerSession = $ObjectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\SessionFactory')->create();

        $customerData = $customerSession->getData();

        $customerId = isset($customerData['customer_id'])?$customerData['customer_id']:'';
