TMOUT – Auto Logout Linux Shell When There Isn’t Any Activity

Something new I learned today — doing

export TMOUT=120

Will auto logout your current shell/login session after that many seconds.

Very useful if you hook this into the root account’s profile or as a default to all users so people can’t leave terminals open
