You can easily increase session lifetime in laravel 5, laravel 6 and laravel 7 version.
If you want to increase your session life time then you can easily do it from configuration file in laravel. laravel provide session.php there is a 'lifetime' key option for setting time in minutes. in session configuration file there is a also several option for set driver, timeout, expire_on_close and encrypt etc.
Basically, you can not set lifetime session for forever but you can set in minutes for session expiration time. so i will set 1 year time for session expire.
60 * 24 * 365 = 525600
