As in, when you stop posting on The Admin Zone, do you log out of your account afterwards?

Personally, I don't. Never really saw the need to log out of anything afterwards, unless I needed to change accounts for some reason. Helps that I don't exactly use this computer in a coffee shop or other public place, so security risks are minimal.

So yeah, do you log out of a site when you're 'done' for a while?

I don't if I'm using devices that belong exclusively to me.

If I'm on my personal devices, then no. However, for sites like online banking and the like, I do logout out of habit.

Logging in takes 6 seconds. Logging out takes 6 seconds.

6 + 6 = 12 seconds.

Average user logs in twice a day = 24 seconds.

24 x 365 = 8760 seconds

Time lost in a year = 2 Hours, 25 Minutes and 59 Seconds

Moral of the day: Stay logged in

I generally stay logged in unless on a public computer like at the library or some such.

No, but I do lock my computer screen every time I get up from the desk.

I would only log out if I was using a shared or public PC (and with those I use incognito mode as an extra protection against leaving sites logged in).

If its a normal user account on a personal device ill stay logged in. If it's a shared device / computer or I'm using an administration account I will always log out.

I stay logged in. When I get logged out randomly, it's pretty tedious to go look up my password for the specific forum. This is why I haven't been on TAZ for a few days. Just checked the forum today and I was logged back in out of nowhere.

Hold on, so you were randomly logged out of here, and then you were somehow logged back in without doing so?

Yes. I wasn't logged in last few days and when I checked today I was logged back in. Maybe a glitch with Safari or something. Or maybe I logged back in and forgot? I could've also been using Chrome, but I have no history with TAZ on Chrome.

I clear cookies and cache on everything when I'm done browsing.

I don't, normally, but I usually end up forgetting to check 'keep me logged in' or I clear browsing data.
