How can I protect my identity? Logout, Logout, Logout


Yes, even from Gmail. We know how convenient it is to login to Gmail in the morning, or at the beginning of the week, and to tick the “Keep me logged in” or “Remember me” box.


The basic premise: you login once and then you don’t have to keep logging back in all the time.


The thing is, all this logged-in-forever convenience comes at the cost of reduced security.


This is especially true for our students on district or public computers. It is important that we teach our students to intentionally logout of the websites and computers used during class to ensure other students cannot access their work or post content under their ID. Closing browser tabs, windows and browsers does not guarantee an account is logged out. Let’s all work together to keep our students safe. Let’s teach every student to logout.


When stepping away, even for a moment, logout of every application, website and computer : Forgetting to logout poses a security risk with any computer that is accessible to other people (including computers in public facilities, libraries, offices, and shared at home), because it leaves your account open to abuse. Someone could sit down at that computer and continue working from your account, doing damage to your files, retrieving personal information, or using your account to perform malicious actions. To avoid misuse by others, remember to logout of every application, website or computer whenever you leave it.
‘Sign out’ or ‘Logout’ are usually located in the upper right corner of the screen.
