So, sometimes I watch CR on a public network. hasn't been a problem except recently the computer now saves data. So I didn't log out on Monday and here it is Friday night/Saturday morning and whoops, I'm still logged in.

Is there a way to set it so CR automatically logs out when I close the browser? Since I do not have access/permissions to change settings on this computer I can't set it so it won't save information and since I'm sure I'll forget in the future I would rather be safe with my account. You know, in case a family of raccoons or something decides to troll people on the forums in my name, that would suck.

I know u said u can't change settings on your computer, but does that include on your browser? If not, and if u are using Firefox, u could change a setting in there so that it erases all your Browser data when u close Firefox.

It's a public computer, its owners are responsible for changes to it.

To be specific it's a computer at a hotel. I'm the weekend night manager here. I spend my time watching movies, playing games, reading books, and the fools actually PAY ME FOR IT. Mwhahah, er sorry. I think the general manager or perhaps the owners reset it to remember websites because lately, within the last 2 weeks or so, someone had downloaded about half a dozen malicious software that threatened to bring down the whole computer and was certainly frequently crashing the browsers.

If you can, I suggest using the following:
http://portableapps.com/download

You can use Mozilla in a USB pen drive. In that way you don't leave a history trail on said computer. This is of course you can load up the application without issues. Do note that the application doesn't change anything on the computer, and you are able to save bookmarks and passwords without it conflicting with the computer's browser program.

Going back to the question, as far as I've seen crunchyroll, it doesn't seem to have a timer on auto log out unlike sites like Hotmail or Craigslist. If didn't take you out on Friday/Saturday, which is a pretty long time frame, then crunchyroll doesn't seem to have a system in place.


Or, you can have a bright orange sticky note on the computer monitor that tells says "DON'T FORGET TO LOG OUT!". Well, have fun with that. Hopefully that family of racoons doesn't like big tats of underage girls flopping all over the place. "LAWL"

Well I am sure you have thought of this and all these fairly complex solutions are cool.... but wouldn't it be easier to just... log out? Just gotta click the little head/shoulder icon at the top right and pick the log out option at the bottom.

Oh wow zendude, that is a perfect solution. That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.

My problem is if I forget. Which I already have. Bringing a jump drive every day is a great way to remember though.

No problem dude. I hope it works.

I guess working as a micro-solutions guy for small business does help for random frivolous everyday problems. "LAWL"

Let's just hope your boss at work doesn't start doing things like restricting program installs or peripherals like they do at my job. You can plug a usb stick into my work pc all day long, it will even see it, you just can't access it.
