I have tried to obtain the logged in customer details by using all the below models. Nothing seems to work. Are there any other ways to obtain the user data?

    \Magento\Backend\Model\Auth\Session $backendAuthSession,
    \Magento\Checkout\Model\Session $currentSession ,
    \Magento\Customer\Model\SessionFactory $customerSession,
  • please check my answer and let me know if not working. Commented Nov 30, 2018 at 6:02
  • Will do. I was Injecting the above three models the way you have said. But not the \Magento\Customer\Model\Session model itself. Commented Nov 30, 2018 at 6:08
  • Please upload your full code here. Commented Nov 30, 2018 at 6:08
  • It did not work. Do I need to make any changes to app/etc/di.xml ?. I am trying to render this in a PHTML Commented Dec 3, 2018 at 14:18

You need to inject \Magento\Customer\Model\Session in your construct

protected $_session;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $session,
) {
    $this->_session = $session;

Then add this below code in your function

if ($this->_session->isLoggedIn()) {
    echo $this->_session->getCustomer()->getId(); //Logged in customer id will display
    echo $this->_session->getCustomer()->getName(); //Logged in customer name will display
} else {
    echo "customer not logged in";
