How to check access_token is expired?

what is best way to check access_token is expired using JavaScript ?

Hey there @sajan welcome to the community!

Each access token will have an exp (expiration) claim which is a Unix timestamp, here’s a sample access token.

You’ll most likely want to use a library listed here to decode an access token in order to inspect the exp claim.

Hope this helps!


thanks for your response. which property need to consider as token expire value access_token.exp or expires_in ?

  "iss": "",
  "sub": "auth0|123456",
  "aud": [
  "azp": "my_client_id",
  "exp": 1311281970,
  "iat": 1311280970,
  "scope": "openid profile read:patients read:admin"
    "access_token": "",
    "scope": "",
    "expires_in": 9600,
    "token_type": "Bearer"

No problem, happy to help!

It really depends on what you’re looking for - exp is the timestamp for the expiration date where as expires_in is the number of seconds to expiration.
