Could someone tell me where the logout button is, or any other way I can log out? This is very URGENT as I am not on my computer and anyone who comes along to this same computer and knows about ProZ could enter my profile and even change my data. This is VERY serious.

Why on Earth does ProZ not have a logout button, or an EASY way I can log out from the system?

Logout button Jan 15

For me, the logout button is an arrow pointing right on the upper right of the page. Hovering the mouse over it you'll see the text "Logout".

I confirm that the logout "button" is the one pointed out by Uldis, although I must confess I have never noticed it before. Mystery meat navigation.

Anyway, if you find yourself on such a public computer again, try using a private browsing tab. For Firefox, it's Shift+Ctrl+P. For Chrome and Vivaldi, it's Shift+Ctrl+N. Private browsing tabs don't "remember" cookies, cache or history. You can then log in to ProZ.com using a private browsing tab, and when you close the browser, it forgets the login entirely.

OK Jan 16

OK. I have just noticed the arrow. Hadn't noticed it before either.

Fortunately the computer I used was indoors and in Brazil very few common people, if any, will have heard of ProZ. Not going to say where the computer is, but it is in a small cybercafé with only three computers, in a place where few people go.

But the question remains. Why doesn't ProZ have an easily identifiable logout tab? In the good old days I remember a link clearly writtem 'Log Out', on the line

Thank you to all who have contributed.
