Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

After I log out from my account, and close my window, loading the page will log in back with my account. It happens when I am not clearing my history and files. When I use public computers it will create problems.

When I click the login button on Stack Exchange, it will log in me back.

Please change the code so that sessions are really removed.

What browser? Can't reproduce here with Chrome and are you sure it's actually logging you back in? A page that has previously been downloaded and is accessed via the 'back' button will often just reload the page from said cache, user name and all (which isn't an SE problem.) There's no evil scripting going on to alter the page dynamically after that. – Grant Thomas Dec 16 '11 at 12:41
Sorry, that back button issue could not found now.. I think they already corrected it.. Till last week I have found that issue.. Previously I have faced it with IE and Fire fox – Sarin Jacob Sunny Dec 16 '11 at 12:46

After you click the "Log out" link from your user drop-down, are you sure you're clicking the "Are you sure?" type button that comes next?

Yes, me too. I'm suggesting to really being logged out, I also see for short a Global Logout page, however restarting the browser, clicking login, automatically logs me in without asking for a password, using StackExchange auth. – metadings Jan 3 '13 at 15:18
