# Do Joomla sessions for guests expire at different periods of time than logged in users?

I've been trying to track down some odd behaviour on a test site of mine and it appears to be due to guest sessions. I could be wrong, but it seems like Joomla sessions for guests are expiring at a faster rate than that set in the adminstrative section (Administrator->Global Configuration ->System->Session Settings.

Is this expected/ known behaviour? If it is, is there anyway I can change the session expiration time for guests to match logged in users?

I'm using

• Joomla Version: 3.9.11
• Session Handler: Database
• Shared Sessions: No

JHtml::_('behavior.keepalive');
