Change access_token Expiration Time

Problem statement

We want to change the expiration lifetime of access_token , by default, it is always 10 minutes.


The lifetime of the Access Tokens can be modified.

  1. Navigate to the API Settings (apiAuth0 Dashboard > Applications > APIs).

  2. Update the Token Expirations (Seconds) and Token Expiration For Browser Flows (Seconds).

This page explains the process in detail: Update Access Token Lifetime

Note: The default lifetime of an Access Token is 24 hours (86,400 seconds).

Access tokens with AUTH0_DOMAIN/mfa audience are restricted to 10 minutes expiry due to security reasons . This cannot be bypassed.
