Hello Facebookers. When you are in your friend’s home and you are using Facebook and suddenly power goes then what you will do? Ah! Now your friend will be definitely dancing because he can view your profile when power comes back. Yes, it’s really annoying and can have very serious effect when you are on cyber cafe or at work and this happens there. But don’t worry. Facebook has option to secure your account. They have that feature that can be used in such situations. You can log out of your account from other device using another desktop or mobile phone also. It is the best thing and really it helps a lot when we face such situations. Let us see how we can log out from other devices.
Before I explain how you can do that, I will tell you how it works. Have you heard about cookies? No, not that chocolate one. Cookies in terms of computer are different thing. It is actually a log text file which is created when you log in by Facebook servers. These files mainly consist of your data or information like browser name, IP address, locality, etc. along with a session ID. Facebook creates two cookies. One is stored in your system or mobile phone browser and one is saved in Facebook databases. Whenever you click or do anything in your account, the system will match your cookies with Facebook database and if it matches then only you can see other page. This is done on every activity you do. Even on simple action of liking a post! So when you are performing this, actually you are deleting the cookies from Facebook databases. So whenever you delete cookies, that means you are logging out from that device. Simple isn’t it?
