Logout Detection Listener

The Logout Detection Listener starts a new, empty profile the moment a customer logs out of your website.

This feature is helpful for GDPR compliance. The Logout Detection Listener makes sure customers aren't shown profile overviews of other customers who have logged into your website before with the same browser. Encourage your customers to log out at the end of every session.
