This dead-simple piece of middleware adds a terrific security feature to django authentication. Currently, users who's accounts are de-activated still may have a cookie and a login session. This middleware destroys that session on their next request.

Simply add this class into a middleware.py and add it to your settings.

from django.contrib.auth import logout

class StrictAuthentication:
        def process_view(self,request,view_func,view_args,view_kwargs):
                if request.user.is_authenticated() and not request.user.is_active:
                        logout(request)
