Move Log Out button to a more visible location

Recommended Posts

The Log Out button is currently deeply buried in the UI, under Account > Settings > Log Out (tab) > Logout (button). This isn't the most intuitive location, and can lead to confusion (or even newer users unwisely leaving their accounts logged in on a shared computer).

A common UI pattern is to place the option to log out directly underneath a dropdown in the top-level navigation menu. A perfect place for this in the PD interface would be under the Account dropdown. I recommend moving it there!

Would you mind telling us reason why you feel a need to log out? Perhaps we can work on those issues and have a more proactive approach to this problem.

On mobile I have to logout just to be able to speak with support, the Live Support tab doesn't work on mobile.

I personally don't often need to log out since I'm the sole user of my computer, but as mentioned in the OP this is a valid requirement for users (particularly newer ones)\ on shared computers. Situating the option to log out in a more easily-accessible location would reduce the risk of a user leaving their account logged in and open to unauthorized access.
