namespace send\sms\Cron; 

use Magento\Framework\ObjectManagerInterface;

class Run  /*extends send\sms\Controller\Customr*/  {

   public function execute()

    $om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
     $customerSession = $om->get('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
     if($customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {

         $idd =$customerSession->getCustomer()->getId();

       $this->_resources = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()->get('Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection');  
    $connection= $this->_resources->getConnection();
    //$sql = "UPDATE `total_cashback` SET is_active= 100 WHERE user_id = '801' ";  
     $sql = "UPDATE `wallet_discounts` SET is_active = 12000 WHERE customer_id = $idd ";  


Cannot get customer Id in the above snippet.

You can not access customer session in cron (not impossible, but very hard to do). You could try creating an observer for customer_login and add your custom logic there.

To create an observer for customer_login

in app/code/Send/Sms/etc/frontend/events.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="customer_login">
        <observer name="send_sms_customer_login" instance="Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend\CustomerLoginObserver"/>

In Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend\CustomerLoginObserver.php

namespace Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend;

use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer as EventObserver;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;

class CustomerLoginObserver implements ObserverInterface

     * @param EventObserver $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(EventObserver $observer)
        $customerId = $observer->getCustomer()->getId()
        //custom logic here

If you want to go the cron route, you could take a look at how Magento implement the "Customers Now Online" feature in Admin -> Customers -> Now Online.
