Hi!

We are using SP 2010, and we are having problems with signing out as it does not completely logs you off from the site even if the browser tab is closed, when you open the site in a new tab, it logs you in automatically using the last login user's credentials.

How to completely log off from the site? We are using the default sign in/out page in sharepoint.

Thanks and regards,

Can you explain what authentication method are you using.

Are you logging in as different users - using the sign in as different users .
Bear in mind that users will normally not do this as they will user their standard ntlm authentication to access the site. So used normally the user does not experience such problems.


The sign in as different user has problems as it holds a token as an authentication method.
Until this token has expired the user has not logged out of the site. This is an artificially produced problem which only exists for administrators who impersonate other users.

We use ntlm authentication.

We have this problem after logging into the site (normal sign in process - browser prompts for username and password) and then click on sign out. It prompts that the browser tab must be closed to completely sign off from sharepoint but when a new tab is opened in that same browser it automatically logs you in using the last logged in user's credential (it does not prompt for username/password like the first time you login).

What we want is that it should prompt for a username and password everytime you login. We tested this on IE and firefox but didn't achieve this even after clearing everything (cache/cookies...).

You should check if it really logs you in as the last user signed in or for the user that is logged into the windows. It could be the single sign on signing you in using your windows credentials. Try loggin in as a different user (than the one logged in Windows) and then sign out, close browser and log back in. You might be signed back in as the user logged onto Windows.

To solve this problem, we created a routine to check if the user has access to the page he is accessing, if he does not have access to it, the user will then be forwarded to the default access denied page and prompts for username and password
