I just want to logout from Stack Overflow. I got below screen.

Now I have a doubt, though - there is one checkbox with text "log out on all devices". I do not understand what this stands for?

Does it means this will invalidate all the apps access_token that I implemented in my personal Stack Overflow Android App by using Authentication OAuth 2.0?

Or it just logout from all the Stack Overflow child sites of the Desktop Broswer?

It will invalidate the access token for the devices, so you should be logged out on your desktop, the SE official app, any app you developed yourself, etc.

  • Thanks let me try this.
