How to log out of Auth0 on tab/window close

I have a React web app set up. It’s hooked up to a new tenant. Login/logout functionality all work.

I want to make it so that when the user closes their tab or browser, I log out of Auth0 as well. Normally I would accomplish logout by using the Auth0JS library’s logout method. I could call this method using the onbeforeunload event, I suppose, but I’m concerned that Auth0 won’t have a chance to finish the logout process before the window/tab closes.

Any suggestions?

Let me consult it and get back to you shortly! Can you just tell me what SDK / framework of ours you use so we can potentially tailor the solution?

I would like to know hot to do this as well.

How do we log out of Auth0 when the user closed the browser? Or is this not possible?

Hey there!

Managed to do some digging in your community forum and found this:

Apart from what ttchuah said in his first message this thread should give you the guidance how the thing with closing tab/window works from our side.
