After going to this address, a similar page like the given figure will appear on your PC’s screen.

You can see there is a personal profile photo of mine with my name in the top right corner of the image. If you set a profile picture, then you will also see the image; otherwise, you need to click on your name.
Step – 3: Select Sign Out Option
After that, you will see an interference like below. All you need to press the sign out option so that you can logout from the yahoo mail.

Sorry about the low picture quality. Now press the edit option, as shown in the figure.
Step – 6: Press The Remove Option
Now you will see a new page like the below-given image. Press the remove option so that you can go to the next step.

I am extremely sorry about the low picture quality. The remove option was not visible in the picture, so I had to edit it. I am hoping that you can understand the process correctly.
Step – 8: Verify The Sign Out Process
After pressing the remove option for two times, you have successfully logged out yourself from the yahoo mail. Now a new window will appear on your mobile screen like below.
In the image, you can see an option called to sign in with yahoo, which indicates you have correctly made it to logout of the yahoo mail. So, if you want to use your yahoo account again, in that case, you need to sign-in again.
Why Log Out is Important?
If you use a public computer or someone’s gadget for urgency then it is very important to log out. You may lose your account or your password may be changed or hacked without your notice. Moreover, your personal data could be stolen. Not everyone does that but for security and personal protection logging out from accounts always beneficial.
It was all about the process of yahoo mail logout on a pc and an android. I am hoping that you find this article quite helpful for yourself, and now you can practically implement the process all by yourself.
But remember, if you own an iOS or MAC, then the entire logout process will be slightly different.
