After one of the more recent updates of the Reddit app, users were left confused about where the 'Log out' button was located since it got removed from plain sight.

If you're using Reddit's services often, you might find this issue a bit annoying because logging out from an app shouldn't take so much time.

I have been using Reddit for years now, and once I log in from a new phone, I never log out. When I tried to find the 'Log out' button with the new update, I struggled as well.

However, once you get a grip of where the new 'Log out' button is located, you'll be back to using and logging out from Reddit as you previously did - fast and smooth.

In this article, we'll cover logging out from Reddit using all types of mobile devices - iPhones, Androids, and the web browser version. Check out the steps down below!

Why is logging out from an account on Reddit important?

Many users use multiple accounts on Reddit, one for private browsing, and one for work-related purposes, per se. In this case, to avoid getting too many notifications, some users decide to log out and log back into the account when they need to.

In addition, Reddit launched 'Anonymous' browsing, which doesn't require an account to be created, all while using Reddit's services with no limits to your account activity. However, Bear in mind, IP addresses can still be tracked.
