How do I log off this site? I'm certain it's easy but I'm currently flummoxed!

I utilized the tags below just so I could post the query.

This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.

  • You could always just close your browser window, or the current tab.... – Hellion May 30 '15 at 19:54

    Click on Stack Exchange in the upper left corner, select log out on the upper right of the resulting pull-down. – Hot Licks May 30 '15 at 19:57
  • THANKS! The answer was obvious. – Reverend KMB May 30 '15 at 20:05

    @Reverend: I've been here for years, and I didn't know/couldn't find the answer until I saw the comment from Hot Licks here. Perhaps one of you two could post it as an answer, so you can formally "accept" it. – FumbleFingers May 30 '15 at 20:26
  • @Hellion That doesn’t log you out. Stack Exchange is excellent at keeping you logged in, even across different devices. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Jun 21 '15 at 10:33

On the desktop website

The rightmost icon in the top bar (which is a greyscale version of the Stack Exchange logo) opens a menu and "log out" is nearly directly underneath, on the same line as the name of the site you're on, next to the links for "help" and "chat".

Picture of what I just described

If you have an unregistered account you might instead see "register". If you don't want to lose all access to your account you need to register, otherwise you can delete your cookies to log out, or use this link: https://english.stackexchange.com/users/logout. (See How do I logout from a non-registered account?)

On the apps

Swipe from the left edge to the right to reveal the navigation drawer. At the bottom, under "Other", is "Log Out".
