Logify: log out of Internet services at once

Logify is a free online service that you may use to sign out of multiple supported Internet services at once; the service is free to use and does not require any special permissions or account related information.

It is easy to log out of Internet services: either find the sign out link on the service's website or delete the stored cookies on the local device to sign out that way.

More work is required if you want to sign out of multiple services at once, say Dropbox, Google, Amazon, and Office 365. While you could visit each site individually to complete the sign out process, or hunt down session cookies, you could also use Logify for that.

logify log out multiple services

Logify is very simple to use: just visit the website and click on the big button in the center of the page that opens to sign out of supported accounts.

The service supports a handful of sites only at this point in time but it includes several of the most popular destinations on the Internet (and Myspace): Dropbox, Office 365, Google, Google Drive, Netflix, Skype, Amazon, Soundcloud, Vimeo, YouTube, The New York Times, Wikipedia, Steam, Myspace, Tumblr, and WordPress.

The system used to initiate the sign out is simple and effective. The page contains iframes which trigger the logout process on the supported sites.

The process is straightforward,the signing out does not take long and you get a success notification afterward. You can verify that you have been signed out by visiting any site you were signed in before you hit the button on the Logify website.

The usefulness of the service depends largely on the sites and services that it supports. It lacks customization options to select the services that you want to sign out to avoid being signed out of others.

Logify is an interesting service nevertheless. It needs support for more sites to make it more useful though and customization options would be appreciated by some users as well.

Who is it for? I first thought that it could be interesting on public computers to sign out of these services but deleting cookies and other session information is more thorough than that.  Obviously, if you just use these services and want to sign out quickly, it may work as well.

Now You: What is your take on Logify?

    My view is that I consider sadly that such an approach be pertinent because of not logging-out in the first place. Staying logged during the browser session is one thing but trans-session logging due to allowed cookies stuns me when it comes to those major Internet services. Here default cookies permission is to deny and exceptions are session only.

    Moreover I imagine Logify needs the users’ credentials for each Internet service concerned. If so that alone wouldn’t please me because I share my Web credentials with no one except with the concerned site.

      How about reading rather than imagining? Then you wouldn’t be totally wrong.

        Thanks, cramble :=)

      I highly doubt it needs your credentials, that’d be insane. Every supported website has to have a link for logging out. All this service does (I’m guessing, though it’s a pretty educated guess) is directs the user to these links in separate iframes.

      Other than the ability to (maybe) log what websites the user is registered to, I don’t think it’d pose any kind of threat to security or privacy. Having said that, I’d much rather just use some kind of cookie management tool myself.

    Dear Martin,

    If I may…interrupt this fine article, by offering my dearest of sentiments,

    I offer to you…

    With layers upon layers of Happy Holly-Daise sauce, with added Christmas berries, lavished in kindness and goodness. With gliding stride into years end, as momentum swells… well into next year.

    Merry Christmas, Martin

    Another troubling post. Martin, are you being approached by these devs to promote these products for compensation?

    Why not also link the actual repository @ https://github.com/SaiG18/Logify

    You can customize all you want..delete sites, add sites, save for offline use..etc

    In addition this script is fairly simple:

    function logout() {
    var sites = [
    “https://www.amazon.com/gp/flex/sign-out.html?action=sign-out”,
    “https://www.dropbox.com/logout”,
    “https://mail.google.com/mail/?logout”,
    “https://google.com/accounts/logout”,
    “https://www.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=signout”,
    “https://www.office.com/logout”,
    “https://www.netflix.com/Logout”,
    “https://www.nytimes.com/logout”,
    “https://secure.skype.com/account/logout”,
    “https://soundcloud.com/logout”,
    “https://steamcommunity.com/?action=doLogout”,
    “https://www.tumblr.com/logout”,
    “https://vimeo.com/logged_out”,
    “https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogout”,
    “https://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=logout”,
    “https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.src=fpctx&logout=1&.direct=1&.done=https://www.yahoo.com/”,
    “https://www.youtube.com”,
    “https://google.com/accounts/logout”
    ];

    Wow, I could not agree more with earlier comments. The Japanese have a word for it ‘hari kari’. DO NOT ever use it.

    Thumbs up to concerned for sharing the script … seems rather innocuous to me.

    This is a very clever implementation of iframes. It seems safe to use and simply creates iframes of the links. It will be very convenient and useful to use in some situations.
