Admins should be able to control the Session Timeout for the Office 365 Portal at https://portal.office.com through the portal itself or with PowerShell. The timeout should function more like SharePoint where it times-out after "5 days of inactivity. Each time a user accesses SharePoint Online, the timeout value is reset to 5 days." This is taken from:
The concept of a 3-hour timeout like what is set now contradicts Office 365's recommended method's for securing identities. Admins should be able to use Conditional Access and MFA to implement proper security rather than obfuscating security through timeouts. I'm fine with a 3-hour timeout if the user doesn't check the "Keep me signed in" box and if they don't use MFA/Compliant/DJ devices.
Let's improve the user experience by encouraging end-users to actually use portal.office.com. Can you imagine how many users would use the Outlook desktop client if they had to enter their passwords every 3-hours!?!?!
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss this further.
...fix the time out double sign in error. Despite logging out correctly from my email, it'll still comes up with the time out error two days later when I try to sign in again! It didn't time out - I logged out.
Office 365 requires two sign-ins after timeout. The 2nd request for a sign-in implies incorrectly that the first attempt failed, as if the password used was incorrect.
Office 365, requires two logins after timeout
