To log out of your Reddit account from the desktop version of the site, click the down arrow near your profile icon and Reddit username on the top right corner.
From the drop down menu, scroll down until you see the log out option at the very bottom. Click Log Out and you will be logged out automatically.
You will then be able to sign in with a different account name if you choose.
To log out of your Reddit account from the mobile app on either a phone or tablet, first tap your profile icon on the top right corner.
From here, click the down arrow next to your username.
Under the Accounts pop up menu, tap the Log Out icon that appears to the right of the checkmark icon.
Tap Log Out to confirm.
Having trouble logging out of your Reddit account?
If the Log Out button is unresponsive on the desktop version of the site, try clearing your browser's cache and cookies.
If you're using the Reddit app, ensure that you're using the most recent version of the app. If so, try uninstalling and reinstalling to see if the problem is resolved.
If neither method works, restarting your device may be the solution.
