I used the Stackoverflow 'Log Out Everywhere' from my work machine yesterday.

alt text

When I came back home, and opened stackoverflow.com using a different machine, I was infact logged out, but got the message saying "Welcome back Lazer, you have been logged in, Click to refresh".

I think this might be a bug with the Log Out Everywhere implementation.


Once you click "Log Out Everywhere" it should stop logging you in automatically; that clears HTML5 Local Storage which contains your network-wide ticket on that particular browser.

It's called HTML 5 Local Storage for a reason, it is local to the particular browser instance you are running on.

    Is the name of the button not a tad misleading then? My guess is that it should read something like Log out of all sites instead. – Justin Nov 15 '10 at 1:50
