Preventing Multiple Simultaneous Logins on a Single Account

Many of our customers who use splash-based access control on their networks have requested the ability to prevent multiple simultaneous logins on their network. We’re pleased to announce that this feature is now available on Meraki networks using either the “specific users” or RADIUS-based splash page authentication methods.

This setting is called “Prevent Multiple Simultaneous Logins”, and it’s located on the “Advanced Settings” page in Meraki Dashboard.

When enabled, Meraki Dashboard tracks the computer (MAC address) from which a given user logs in. If a user logs in from a different computer than the previous login, Dashboard will automatically de-authorize the previous computer. This prevents a single login account from being used by multiple computers at one time.

This feature is available in Meraki Pro and Carrier Editions.
