Laravel - Authentication - Authenticate A User By Id

To authenticate a user using their database record's primary key, you may use the loginUsingId method. This method accepts the primary key of the user you wish to authenticate:

    
    Auth::loginUsingId(1);
	

You may pass a boolean value as the second argument to the loginUsingId method. This value indicates if "remember me" functionality is desired for the authenticated session. Remember, this means that the session will be authenticated indefinitely or until the user manually logs out of the application:

    
    Auth::loginUsingId(1, $remember = true);
