    I run a premium site and I feel that with the increasing use of mobile devices amember account sharing is virtually defunct now for my needs.

    Would it be possible to have a plugin or script to allow only one user login at a time?

    User 1 logins and if his friend logs in with user1's details this would in effect kick out the first session giving a message only one login at a time permitted.

    Is this possible in either aMember or wordpress?

    Seems you would hook into the account sharing function and expire the session from there. I think there will still be some limited access the expired user may still have while their cookies remain on their system.

    This functionality does not exist today. You would need to modify aMember or develop a plugin.

    No. At this time it would be a custom additon/modification.
