  • Some pages may continue to display your Username, as if you were still logged in, until you clear your browser cache and cookies. Refresh the page and it'll say Sign In instead.
  • Always log out if you are using a computer that is accessible to others, such as in a workplace, another person's computer or laptop, or in a public library.
  • If you forget your password, we can send you a new password via email, but only if you previously supplied it to us.
  • You can continue editing or writing articles on wikiHow as you would normally. Instead of your user name showing up on the author's section, Anonymous will show up instead.
