Have you ever logged into your Facebook account at work and forgot to log back out before leaving for the day?
Or perhaps you borrowed a friend’s smartphone to post a quick status update and then handed the phone back to him/her without logging out?
Situations like these can leave your Facebook account and all of the sensitive information stored therein available to people who might desire to use it for nefarious purposes.
Luckily, there’s an easy way to log out of your Facebook account from any remote device. Here’s how:
Note: The steps listed below will log you out of any active Facebook sessions using a standard web browser. The steps might vary a bit when using a mobile device, but they are very similar.
1 – Log into your Facebook account from any computer.
2 – Click the little Down Arrow located on the right-hand side of the blue status bar at the top of the window.
3 – Select Settings from the drop-down menu.
4 – Click the Security link in the left-hand column.
5 – Find the Where You’re Logged In line and click the Edit link at the far right. You should now see a list of all active sessions in which you (or someone else) is currently logged into your Facebook account along with the device the account is logged on with as well as the physical location of the device.
6 – Click End Activity for every session except the one you are using right now.
7 – Click Close.
Once you have ended all active Facebook sessions except for the one you are using right now, you’re done. You can either continue using Facebook or simply log out and get on with something else.
other open tabs for that browser should still be open and operating normally.
