  • Many time we faced TokenMismatchException error in laravel, this error occurred If you stay too long time on one form or if your system stay on idle or you are not active on your computer, and then again try to fill this form.

  • At that time you may get a TokenMismatchException error, because the CSRF token won’t be the same. recently many time we found this problems in logout time. So, In this example i will show you to how to avoid it.

  • Normally, if you are not active for long time in your system then you will get this error.

  • To avoid TokenMismatchException error, we may add exceptions for the URLs that we don’t want to have CSRF protection. There are special array for that – in app/Http/Middleware/VerifyCsrfToken.php

class VerifyCsrfToken extends Middleware
{
    /**
     * The URIs that should be excluded from CSRF verification.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $except = [
        //
    ];
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

So what we need do, just add logout into this array.

protected $except = [
    '/logout'
];
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you want to add more URLs then you can add here, but CSRF protection is also important.
