I've been parted from my tablet, accidentally. It keeps me logged into the forum. Is there a way I can log it out remotely?

Why don't you change your password, for starters?

Already done, but that doesn't appear to log me out on all devices.

Hi Fig, if you haven't already got this sorted, I'd suggest talking to one of the Mods - I'm sure the Administrator could force exit you.

I think you're right, MarcherLady... thanks. That should have occurred to me but I've been in a rush.

@arebelspy, can I bother you for help once again?

Hmm... I can't find a way to do this.

I assume you have no way to remotely wipe your tablet?
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

If there is, I can't find it. Thanks though...

What kind of tablet is it?

According to this post, logging out on one device may or may not log you out on all devices. Specifically, this message states that this design was an intentional decision.

I did a couple quick checks using 2 web browsers and a phone. Logging out on either web browser logged me out of the other browser. Logging out of browser A also logged me out of the phone (I didn't check if browser B logged me out of the phone due to lazyness). It appears that logging out on one device (i.e. whatever you're currently using to access the forum) should log you out of the missing tablet. Please check my work though!

Best of luck recovering your tablet, or if that's not a realistic option, closing all the security holes the disappearance has caused.

ETA: I used a browser on the phone as well, so I didn't check any mobile app. That would probably be a good next step.
