How to Adjust Session Timeout in Google Analytics 4 (GA4)

By default, every session in Google Analytics 4 (GA4) will last a maximum of 30 minutes. This means when you visit a website, if you leave the website inactive (move to a different tab, etc) and leave it for more than 30 minutes, then the session will end automatically. This is what is referred to as the default session timeout. In GA4, we have an opportunity to adjust this number and change the session timeout to any amount of time that we'd like. This quick and easy guide will show you how to adjust session timeout in Google Analytics 4!
