Adds a keyboard shortcut to log you out of the current page. Default shortcut is Alt+\. See options to change the shortcut.
Keep your accounts safe by easily logging out of them! No more friends impersonating you on Facebook! Never again let someone read your emails by mistake! Last time you'll look around a webpage to find the "log out" link hidden in a menu! With this extension, one key combination is enough to log out. Having a "log out" one key combination away means that you'll be much more likely to do it. And that means you're more likely to keep your account away from prying eyes. This is a perfect complement to a password manager. I personally recommend 1Password: https://agilebits.com/onepassword Note for Windows users: after installation, please go to options and set a shortcut. For non alphanumeric characters, it might show a strange character for some reason. Do not pay attention to the display and you will be able to use the shortcut you actually pressed. For example, choosing Alt+\ will display "Alt+Ü". However, pressing the keys Alt+\ will work just fine to log out. Sorry about the weird behavior. ================================= Explanation of required permissions: ================================= - "Your data on all websites": this permission is required because the extension needs to be able to run a script on any page. Any script run on a page technically has access to the data displayed. - "Your tabs and browsing activity": this permission is required to interact with the proper tab when logging out.

- (2012-11-23) Quick and easy. This is an excellent extension for those who utilize password managers or are just security conscious with online accounts. The developer is very responsive to user feedback. I would recommend this extension to my own family and friends.

I can't get the shortcut key to work on Win7 Pro. I can click on the address bar icon and the script works, but defeats the purpose. Am I missing something?
