Logging Out with Web Authentication

Normally, you can logout by simply clicking Logout. However, there are situations where the normal Logout link is not available. For example, web-authenticated users on mobile devices may not be presented with the normal Logout link. In addition, users who log in to a machine that was not properly logged off by a previous user will not be presented with the normal Logout link.

In these situations you can logout at any time by entering the following URL:

http://lsaccess.me/logout

Wondering when that might come in handy? Here’s an example:

  • 1. A user attempts to go to website, gets blocked, and doesn’t log out.
  • 2. A second user logs into the same machine by clicking the Not You? Link. (That user is a web authenticated user. You can see their login up top.)
  • 3. When they’re finished browsing, the second user logs out by entering the lsaccess.me/logout URL in the address bar of the browser.
  • 4. That second user gets a message that they have been logged out.

Logging out is a good practice to get all your users into!
