Protecting your identity in public
Imagine your routine library trip, turning into a case of stolen work information, or even worse, identity theft. It’s not something people concern themselves with often, but is a definite risk when using public computers to access various accounts.
Forgetting to log out could be extremely detrimental to your security, especially if someone gets a hold of a confidential business agreement, or god forbid, something as sensitive as a tax document or your clients’ information. That’s why the people over at Super Logout have created their free service – to ensure the security and privacy your online accounts deserve.
Don’t click to the site until ready
WARNING: do NOT click the link to Super Logout until you are actually ready to log out of everything, and we mean everything. Once clicked, it starts automatically and you WILL be logged out in a blink.
By clicking on the Super Logout link below users are automatically logged out of up to 30 different accounts including Gmail, Netflix YouTube, and eBay.
There’s nothing else to it. No setup, no email signup, no downloads. There’s no security risk in using it, as it doesn’t remember any login information, just logs you out of tons of sites at once.
Bookmark it for later, like when you’re at an Apple store
So be sure you don’t do this on your personal computer, like I did – it can be a huge inconvenience trying to remember my Netflix password. Instead, email it to yourself and flag it; the next time you’re on a public computer (like when you’re tooling around at the Apple store or on a coworker’s computer), you can access it quickly before you leave, and super log out will log out of all of your accounts automatically, which is one more brilliant tool to add to your toolbox of online security.
