You can use this function to see who is currently logged into your site through FTP. You can also terminate any FTP connections to your site that you feel should not be open. This can be very useful in preventing users from accessing your files without your permission.

Here are the steps:

  1. To access the FTP Manager, click on the words "FTP Manager" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Click on "FTP Session Control." You will see all the users logged in through FTP on this page. Their username as well as the server they are logging in from, and the time they logged in at will be shown.
  3. To end a user's FTP session, click on disconnect next to the user you wish to end the session for

Troubleshooting: Terminating a user's session while they are transferring files may cause a problem. Make sure you wish to terminate a user's session before doing it
