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... Commented Jun 23, 2012 at 4:31
  • Have you tried logging out?

  • What type of account is it? Truly a Stack Exchange account (email address, password)? Or some other OpenID provider?

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) Commented Jun 23, 2012 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. Commented Jun 23, 2012 at 6:15
  • @Romil: You'll have to do the same. This is usually the case when you stay logged in. Commented Jun 23, 2012 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. :)
