No issues so far. Clean and simple. I manage all of our client’s websites. Now, I can see and be certain that no one is doing anything in the back end before I go to update WP, Themes or Plugins – just in case I get and error, or cause and Administrative User to get bumped out of the site while they’re trying to Add, Edit or test something. I can see at a glance if ANY user is logged in and who. Perfect. There are other options (such as Fathom) that will allow you to see visitors accessing/viewing the front end and give you a ton of analytics, but they don’t show you if an admin or editor is connected or working on something. This plugin is the answer.

WP Online Active Users has made me aware that there is an instability of the logged-in status on my website. Users are not always getting what they should after logging in. This is an important finding but not one that makes me happy.
