1 Answer 1


Both are correct - it ultimately depends on the question that you wish to ask.

If you were to ask:

Are you logged in?

Then you are asking whether the user is currently logged into a particular system at the present moment.

Whereas, if you were to ask:

Have you logged in?

Then you are asking whether, at some point in time, the user has performed the action of logging into a particular system.
