    @Floydian Yes. It just logs you out from those selected services (only from that browser client) if you have logged in. It will be very helpful if you are not sure whether you have logged out or not. Mostly used if you use shared computer/ College PC, friends Pc/ internet cafe etc

    @Floydian it's a good idea. But the additional feature is not possible because you need to use user permission like a token to make actions on behalf of the user. All the API are subjected to CORS so it is not possible.

    @Floydian I agree with you. But only few saas services provide public Apis. So we can provide services only for those.

    Ummmm... How does it work tho? The fact that your site can log me out from, twitter for example, is quite scary.

    @Froot don't worry. It works by clean hack

    @Bharathvaj I'm sorry but that doesn't inspire any confidence πŸ˜„

    I have a look at your repo, I saw there was a github link a the top

    Ooookay, from my brief overview of the source it doesn't seem to do anything. Basically you choose the sites you want to log out from and it just shows a popup with "yay you logged out" aaaaaaand that's it. Interesting πŸ˜„

    @Froot it appears to be nothing. But internally it is making a logout API request to the selected apps πŸ˜…

    @Bharathvaj "internally"? Doesn't show up anywhere in the code, the logout method you have didn't do anything but show a notification.

    Also, it would probablly run into cors if it made these requests. Sites like those don't really want random third party sites making requests on their users' behalf. And for good reason, it's dangerous

    @Froot The hack here is making API request without getting into CORSπŸ˜€

    @Bharathvaj Cool. So it's magic and fairy dust. I can dig that...

    @Froot it just call the logout URL for each page (See: https://github.com/bharathvaj1995/...)

    @Sarcaxxo huh. I must be really bad at reading Vue because I saw no mention of any calls being made. O well
