How to log out of Facebook

It's time to log out.

If you have a computer, tablet, and smartphone, chances are you’re probably logged into Facebook on multiple devices. Sure, it’s convenient. But logging out of Facebook is an easy way to protect your privacy.

There are a few ways to do this. You can log out of each device individually. Or there’s a way to log out of all devices at the same time. We’ll break each one down.

Log out of all devices at the same time

Click the icon of the downward-facing triangle in the top right corner of your screen.

Clicking this icon takes you to the general settings page.

Then click “Settings & Privacy,” and then “Settings.” That will take you to the settings overview page.

Click on “Security and Login” in the lefthand column, then find the section that says “Where You’re Logged In.” From there, you can log out of each device individually, or click “Log Out Of All Sessions.” A window will pop up prompting you to confirm this — click “Log Out” and you’re done.

Manage and access all the devices where you are logged into Facebook.

Log out on the Facebook mobile app

On your smartphone, it’s also pretty simple to log out. Tap the icon of three parallel lines. Scroll down to the bottom and tap “Log Out.” You’ll then be prompted to confirm that you wish you log out.

On the iPhone app, the three lines icon is on the bottom right.

Log out on a mobile browser

If you’re using Facebook on your phone’s browser, not through the app, locate the three parallel lines icon on the top right corner of your screen. Just like before, scroll down to the bottom and tap “Log Out.” A prompt will pop up asking if you want the browser to save your login info when you log out. Choose “Save and Log Out” or “Don’t Save and Log Out” to complete the process.

Fine the three lines icon.
