NEW YORK, USA: Social networking major Facebook announced on Thursday that it is rolling out a new security feature that allows users log out of their accounts remotely from another computer.

With this new security feature, Facebook expects to address the problem that many of the PC users who forget to log out of their account.


The feature is currently rolling out to the more than 500 million users gradually and it may take a couple of weeks before it becomes available to everyone.

The feature consists of a new “Account Activity” chart divided into two categories — “Most Recent Activity” and “Also Active.” While 'Most Recent Activity' shows the last device where a user logged in from, 'Also Active' shows other devices where a users is logged in simultaneously. From there, a user can choose to “end activity” on any active session.

To do this, go to "account settings" on your Facebook page and click on "change" next to "account security." There, you'll see where else your Facebook account is logged in, including the type of device and the city it's in or near. To log out of any of them, click "end activity."
