The documentation for Dancer2::Session::YAML 
<https://metacpan.org/pod/Dancer2::Session::YAML#DESCRIPTION>, at least, 
says otherwise:

This backend an [sic] perfectly be used in production environments, but 
two things should be kept in mind: The content of the session files is 
in plain text, and the session files should be purged by a CRON job.

I haven't had any problems like you describe, so perhaps your issue was 
limited to Dancer::Session::YAML, which according to the docs 
<https://metacpan.org/pod/Dancer::Session::YAML#DESCRIPTION> is "not 
recommended...in production environments." Either that, or you just have 
too many visitors to your site ;)
