How to tell if a user is logged in from JavaScript

Hi,

I have some functionality I am trying to build where I see whether or not the current user is authenticated, and fire some events based off that logic. I was planning on using secure_customer_sig to see whether or not it is set, and then firing / not firing those events.

However, I have now learned secure_customer_sig is HttpOnly, so I cannot read it from the client.

I need no customer data, I just want to know if they are authenticated or not. Is there any way to do this from JS?

Thanks!

@justinGP how are your users authenticated?

Do they use a web form to sign in with an email, password combo?

Or do they simply visit your store in the browser?
