Until you set the Session times out after value on a profile, the Timeout value in the organization Session Settings applies to users of the profile. When set, the profile Session times out after value overrides the org-wide Timeout value. Changes to the org-wide Timeout value don’t apply to users of a profile with its own Session times out after value.
From Setup, enter Profiles in the Quick Find box, then select Profiles.
