Will someone intrude into my account?

January 14, 2008 12:55am CST
For example, I opened my email account and left it log on for a few hours then I close the window without logging out. Will someone hijack my account since it is log on? What happens behind after closing the window without logging out?

Someone can reopen it with your account if you close the window directly without logging out.The reason is that so many system use cookies to store your account infomation and clean it by logout.So if you did like what you said,someone will login the system directly with your account without requesting username and password.It's very dangerous.

They will only be able to get into your account if they use the same computer you did, but email services automatically log you out after being idle for a certain about of time.
