I am unable to log out from Stack Exchange in my browser, in both PC and mobile. After logging out, when I open the site again it appears as I am already logged in. I have not enabled the remembering of my password for this site, either.

    $\begingroup$ Why oh why would you want to log out anyway? : P $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Click on the small triple horizontal bar icon on the top right (extreme right) of your screen when you open physics stack exchange. A drop down list appears. Click "log out". $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Blue - That's a meaningful suggestion, but I think, the OP wrote "After logging out ...", so presumably he/she knows about that icon. I think, what the OP means is, hitting log out there isn't working for him/her. Perhaps that's why the OP tagged this with a "bug". :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Probably your browser stores the password and keeps you logged in $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ SE does some slightly complex things to enable automatic network-wide login, so I'd definitely recommend searching on Meta Stack Exchange. There should be some information there about it. $\endgroup$
