Handling session expiry


This feature is only applicable if you are using our pre built UI, and are using the <SessionAuth> component to protect your routes.

A session can expire if:

  • The user has been inactive for too long and their refresh token has expired.
  • The session has been revoked from the backend, but not the frontend.

Using the onSessionExpired prop#

import React from "react";
import { SessionAuth } from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
import MyComponent from "./myComponent";

const App = () => {
return (
onSessionExpired={() => {/* ... */ }}>
<MyComponent />

You will need to either reload the current page or redirect the user to the sign in page if you provide this callback.
