Middleware, how to redirect after check Laravel 5

I need after check if user is logged as editor, to redirect to profile page...

Here is my code:

<?php namespace App\Http\Middleware;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Redirect;

use Closure;

class AdminMiddleware {

* Handle an incoming request.
* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
* @param \Closure $next
* @return mixed
public function handle($request, Closure $next)
if(Auth::user()->roles->toArray()[0]['role'] == 'editor'){
return redirect('/profile');
return $next($request);

return $next($request);


Problem with this code is when user is editor I get infinite loop....

Here is my routs:

Route::group(['middleware' => 'auth'], function(){

Route::get('home', ['middleware' => 'admin', function()
return view('home');
Route::get('profile', array(
'as' => 'profile',
'uses' => 'UserController@getProfile'


Anyone know what is problem?


Where did you register your middleware in App\Http\Kernel? Under protected $middleware = [] or protected $routeMiddleware = [] ?

If you registered it in $middleware it will run on each very request thereby causing infinite loop, so if so use only $routeMiddleware
