Problem with logging out of WordPress App
In one of our searches we stumbled upon a thread where users of the App are asking questions and expressing their concern.
Two prominent ones we found are:
“I cant find a way to log out from my web sites when using the WorPress app. This does not feel secure.
“Is there a way to log out that i’m missing? If not, will there be an option to log out? I found an old post asking for this also. I think the future is here now,” a user Mjalar asked.
Then come another one which is closely related to the above:
Dan says: “Is there a way to log out for a wordpress site in the app. I can’t find it. Whenever I open the app I seem to be logged in already.. all the time.”
According to Dan, WordPress App is “Convenient, but not so secure.”
