I'm trying to check if the user is logged in. But the problem is in my code eventhough I already logged out it's still check and output that the user is still logged in. Below is my code

namespace Tcm\Goodgifts\Helper;

class Customer extends \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context $context,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context $httpContext
    ) {
        $this->customerSession = $customerSession;
        $this->context = $httpContext;

    public function isLoggedIn()


        return $this->customerSession->isLoggedIn();

So basically if I run the bin/magento setup:upgrade the correct output is being displayed. But after I log out or login it retains the old state and not the new one. When I outputted the value of $this->context->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH) it give me this

enter image description here enter image description here

So as you can see it somehow get the value under _httpContext->data["customer_logged_in"] but when checking the value I think the correct value should be the one under the _httpContext->default["customer_logged_in"] but I don't know how to get this value.

Just by running $this->context->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH) will retrieve the object Data and not the Default.

Any idea how to get this value? I'm guessing the Default note returns the correct/updated value

You sort of half answered your question

When fullpage cache enable generic session class will not work as you expected


  • Ok so what will be he solution? Aside from disabling the fullpage cache which is not an option for me right now Feb 24, 2020 at 11:54
  • @MadzQuestioning did you see this magento.stackexchange.com/a/305070/70343 Feb 24, 2020 at 12:53
  • Yeah this actually solved my problem. Although I had trouble thinking about how to bind the Customer since I don't know Knockout js. But when I looked at the header.phtml of magento theme I was able to fix it. Thanks for the help Feb 24, 2020 at 16:08
