Remotely sign out of Facebook

Facebook is rolling out yet another new feature. Well, it's pretty useful. You can now remotely sign out of remote sessions on Facebook. Here's a simple explanation: It allows you to sign out of the largest social networking website after you have forgotten to do that on a public computer, or a friend's computer. Or whatever.

Here's how to use it:

  • Go to your Account Settings. It is in Account (top right) -> Account Settings.
  • Here, find Account Security and click 'change'.
  • In here, if you scroll down, it tells you about the recent sessions and also the currently active ones.

You can now click 'end activity' for each of the sessions. You are now secure.
