I have modified the password of my Stack Overflow account. I am able to login without entering new password on the computer where old password is saved.

How I can force to enter new password to connect to website ?

This looks more like a browser help request with saved passwords than an SO issue. Could you please clarify? I'm not quite able to get you... –  Manishearth Jun 23 '12 at 4:31
    
Have you tried logging out? –  Anna Lear Jun 23 '12 at 4:33
    
What type of account is it? Truly a Stack Exchange account (email address, password)? Or some other OpenID provider? –  Arjan Jun 23 '12 at 10:53
    
@Arjan, Truly Stack Exchange Account. Not using facebook or other account. –  Romil Jun 23 '12 at 17:37
    
Thanks everyone for keeping my account secure on other machine. –  Romil Jun 24 '12 at 3:39

When you log out it will log you out everywhere

  1. Mouse over your display name at the top, and choose "log out"

  2. Click the "log out" button, which will:

    clear all local credentials in your browser, and log you out on all devices.

For some reason, I've never used the button yet (close browser=log out, or I'm always logged in) –  Manishearth Jun 23 '12 at 5:44
    
If I logout from my machine and log-in again with new password. What will be the effect on other machines where I am already login and logout is not done. –  Romil Jun 23 '12 at 6:15
    
@Romil: You'll have to do the same. This is usually the case when you stay logged in. –  Manishearth Jun 23 '12 at 6:23

Clear the browser cache, That will remove all exisiting cookies and session.

Even if you don't logout, it'll ask you to login. Then you can login with new password. :)

Removing all cookies is bad idea. –  Romil Jun 24 '12 at 3:38
