I learned something new about LinkedIn today – you can see where you are logged in. I thought I would see 3 computers that I was currently logged into; my phone, laptop and iPad, but boy was I shocked when I saw I was still logged in 48 places over the last 4 months. How crazy is that?! I am walking with my head down in shame! Did I really forget to log out of all of those computers?

warning

I teach every day in public venues and private companies, and I seem to not be logging out. Well, thanks to the #linkedinchat I participated in tonight, I have now learned how to remotely log out of all those accounts, and I would like to share those steps with you tonight:

From the Your active sessions page, you can see how many sessions you’re currently signed into. https://www.linkedin.com/settings/sessions

On that page, you can also review all devices that are signed in to your LinkedIn account, when you last signed in, what browser was used, the IP address, and the city and state the login occurred.

To view your sessions:

  1. Hover over your profile photo on the top right of your homepage and select Privacy & Settings.
    • You may be prompted to sign in.
  2. Click See where you’ve logged in in the top section under Your active sessions.

To sign out of a session:

  1. Click Sign out to the right of the session you’d like to end.
  2. Click Sign out to confirm.

To sign out of every active session (except your current one):

  1. Click Sign out of all these sessions at the top of your list.
  2. Click Sign out to confirm.

If you are logged into sessions in places you don’t recognize, consider changing your password!

Please give this a thumbs up and share it with your network! Also, please share how many sessions you are/were logged into in comments.
