How to Log Out Your Online Accounts From Other System

Have you ever left your online account's open on a public computer without proper log out and scared of your personal information would be misused by strangers. For instance: left your account without signing off on public internet centers and went miles away from the last logged in devices, in this case you cannot just come back from miles just to log out your account from that device.

          There was a time when people stored confidential personal information on Locker's with heavy securities guarding around, but technology evolution has made everything simple, which allowed its users to store any information and provides 100% safety even the most deadliest weapon in the world cannot break it, hence we store all confidential e-mail and bank details on reliable online accounts such as google, yahoo etc.

Why is that necessary to sign-out remotely ? 
         Whenever you login into your account from any computer, the browser stores the cookies of login details and temporary internet files, because by default every computer was set to store cookies and temporary internet files. until you or someone deliberately log-out your session on that device, the account remains open and can be accessed after sometime or next day without the need to input password credentials to access. If the account left without signing off on that device then even though the user's has used the account later on some other device and performed a proper logout will not log out the earlier session left without signing-off.

Tips-Note: If you are in a public internet center's we recommend you to use incognito window for browsing, hence this will never keep track of anything and will automatically sign out when the browser is closed.
