Logging Out of the League of Legends Client
If you don’t want to play the game directly from your web browser, you’ll have to download the League of Legends client or application.
You can’t use the same steps to log out of the client and the web browser. They require different approaches. Let’s take a look at how to log out of the client.
With the game open, look at the top right corner of the window. You’ll see several buttons. First, click on the X button – it’s the last one on the top right corner.
A pop-up box will appear on your screen. You’ll see two options: Exit and Sign Out. Selecting Sign Out will allow you to log out of the game. If you want to log out as well as exit the game, select the Exit button.
While logging in, if you opted to remain signed in, selecting the Exit button will close the client, but you’ll still be logged in. Instead of Exit, select Sign Out.
Logging Out From the Web Browser
As mentioned, you can access League of Legends through a web browser like Firefox or Chrome. Let’s take a look at how to log out when you finish playing the game.
When you log into your account, your summoner name will appear on the top right corner of the page.
Click on your summoner name.
A drop-down menu will appear. Select Logout from the menu.
Logging Out Through the Task Manager
After trying any of the methods above, if you still can’t log out, try doing so via the task manager. Note that this method will only work for you if you play the game via the client and not their web browser. These are the steps to follow.
Open your task manager if you’re using Windows, or force quit applications if you use iOS.
Select the League of Legends and end the task or force quit.
You should keep in mind that you won’t be logged out after using this method if you chose the Keep Me Signed In option when you were logging in.
With any of these methods, you should be able to log out after you’re done playing the game. Logging out will protect your personal information from getting into the wrong hands.
You should be even more careful if you’re using a public computer. Otherwise, those who use it after you can easily gain access to your account information.
