Log out


For your own security, click the "Log out" button when you are done. It only takes an extra second, but logging out closes your open connection with the server, which is important for your security. It prevents another user from accessing your account, especially if you are working on a computer that is shared with other users. This also clears resources that are normally reserved on our server to maintain your active session.

Your session remains open in the background even if you move on to visit other websites, until you Log out or shutdown your web browser. You can return to DriveHQ using the BACK button on your browser and continue where you left off. If you do not Logout, and leave your computer unattended, it is possible for someone else to use the computer to return to your open server session.

For this reason, we have implemented an Automatic Log Off security feature to close your session automatically after a few hours of inactivity, in case you forget to Log Off.
