Logging in is relatively straightforward, but once you're entrenched in Outlook's user interface, you might have trouble figuring out how to sign out. And depending on the device, you may not be able to log out of Outlook without deleting or removing your account.

Specifically, for those using the Outlook desktop app for Mac or the Outlook mobile app, 'logging out' in the traditional sense isn't really possible. On the mobile app, your phone's built-in security features serve as a way to keep your inbox safe unless you decide to delete your account from the app.

For those using the email client's most recent versions, Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016, all your account information is tied to your device's user account and stored locally on your computer. That means it will be accessible to anyone if they log in through your user account, unless you remove it.

If you really want to protect your account on your mobile device and computer, there are several ways to keep your messages secure.
