What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I was testing an alternate account for Stack Overflow (by creating it and logging in), and now I am unable to log back into Stack Overflow using my original credentials.

When I click on the Stack Exchange login link, it automatically sends me in as my test/alternate account.


Edit: 2013-03-20 - I tried deleting cookies related to stackoverflow.com and stackexchange.com, but I am still getting logged in as the 'test' user account.

This really feels like a bug, as there is never an opportunity for a user to specify a user account.

Go here: http://stackoverflow.com/users/logout and click logout

Then go here: https://openid.stackexchange.com/user and click logout

Then log back in.

When I encounter such problem, I usually clear web browser's cache.

Empty the cache of your browser would work.
