Continuing from Part 3:

16. Time-out Login
You can save the user login time in the db and log them out if they are inactive for more than a certain time (for example, thirty minutes). It is highly recommended for a higher application security.

17. Remember-Me Login
You can use the db for auto-authentications where the logged-in user credentials will be remembered after your first login. It is the opposite of the Time-out Login option.

18. Forgot Password Security Questions
You can use the db to setup and save security questions, like what banks do, and use them for a website secure forgot password processing.

19. E-Commerce
The foundation of all advance (or even basic) e-commerce solutions and shopping carts is laid upon a normalized and secure db. The more investment (time and efforts) in the db design and development, the higher pay-off you get in the horizon.

20. Brutal-force Attack
Brutal-force attack happens when a hacker tries to login to an account as many times as possible until they find the account credentials. Experienced programmers know that the best way to protect users against this attack is to save the login attempts in the db and block the hacker.

I like to mention that the power of the db is not limited to the discussed 20 benefits. Indeed, I have implemented many other creative solutions in MySQL that are not covered here. As a matter of the fact, no matter what you wish to develop or create in the online business, the db is ready to serve your needs. The more competent the db developers are, the more you can accomplish with your business ideas.
