Implementing Implicit Logout for API Calls: Best Practices and Considerations

In this meeting, the State Changers discuss the issue of logging out a user when their authentication token expires. They review the current implementation and propose a solution. They suggest adding a check for a 401 error response from the server and redirecting the user to the login page if this error occurs. They discuss implementing this check in the existing workflow and recommend triggering it on a relatively frequent event, such as navigating to the homepage. They also mention that it is common to have multiple authentication tokens tied to one ID and that having multiple live tokens at the same time is not a security concern. Overall, the participants believe that implementing this solution will address the main issues related to authentication.
