Seldom I logout from MyLot after using. Normally, I just open my broswer and type in MyLot URL and I am in my account as I did not logout previously. Then, recently my husband created an account in MyLot too. He too does not have the habit to logout after using. Just few days ago, I post a response in MyLot, after posting only I realise that it is not my account, I was using my husband account.Anything like this happens to you before?

I stay together with my friends in a small home. We are a student college. But only me who using MyLot, so I'm never logout. My friends did not like browsing web directory with English. It's sad for me. But, if I access MyLot from my office, of course I log off. This important and all of you know the reasons.

I always don't log out here in myLot and in some other sites that I have. Since I am using Firefox, I just simply save and quit the browser that I have and go back with it the next time I sign in. In that way I also won't forget what I have left or I could continue to where I left it.

Not at all, in fact you can even use Firefox to remember your username and password of your different sites. That is the added features of Firefox.

balasri, yes, I am like that too! But, I will still make sure I logout if I were using my office computer. One thing is that my office tracks out internet usage. So, I have to logout to make sure that they wont mistaken that I was still connected for whole day if I do not logout after each visit.

You are doing the wise thing with the office computer.

my girlfriend and i both have myLot accounts and we just have this one computer, i don't know if it's happened to you yet, but sometimes she'll log out, and i'll log in. but then a little while later it will just automatically log her back in again. it used to get frustrating when i would respond to someone and all of a sudden it would be her account responding. now that we know about it, we make sure it says the right username before hitting the "post response" button. i guess the myLot server just reads our IP address and sometimes isn't sure which one of us should be logged in, so it randomly picks one.

sconibear, now you say about it, I wonder if that is what happened to me when I post that response under my husband's account instead. I will pay some attention on that next time. Thank you so much for sharing with me!

yeah, it usually just does it when you first switch.....once you're logged in for a while it should be ok.

Well, I am on a Home Computer, and I am the only one using my Computer and posting in here, so I never log out from home. If I was to ever use a personal Computer somewhere, or someone else's computer I would Log out to prevent any problems, but I find it a pain to have to log in and out of most of my sites, so I leave them open for sure.

KrauseHome, from what I gather here, I found that most of the Mylotters never logout their account.

Me too I never logout from mylot. I don't like having to type my user name and my password all the time. I log in many times a day so I just live the page open. I didn't know you can have different accounts from the same houshold. So it's not against mylot terms? My mother in-law would like to create an account but I thought it's not allowed.

VotreAmie, I think there is no reason why your mother in law cannot have her own account. It does not make sense that everyone in a house share one account in MyLot. Some more, who would want to share account here?

I can't say that this has ever happend to me for I am the only one on mylot here. Noone else shares this account or my computer but me. That must have drove you nuts not realiseing that you were under your husbands account and posting he said thankyou I hope? lol for you helped him earn a little. He must be a nice guy and do the same for you I would think it's only fair.

Hello, redsponge! No, I do not logout from myLot after using it. I am the only one that uses myLot here at home, and this computer is almost always used by me only. Therefore, there is no need to worry, since the few people that use this computer have no interest in myLot, except for me. Since I am the only one who has an account in here, what happened to you has never happened to me. I believe you will have to keep your eyes open when logging in and see if you are either on you account or on your husband's account. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

munhozmib, maybe if MyLot would pay more, then I would be able to buy a new notebook. Then I do not have to share notebook with my husband anymore.

I logout all the time because i don't want to have some idle time here in myLot in case i left my browser open. It's also safer to logout so as to prevent people from messing with yout myLot account just like what happened to you (..or your husband lol!). At least this way, nobody can read my naughty responses and discussions here lol! I usually logout before the earnings will start to refresh so when i log in, it'll be a surprise to check my earnings for the day.
• Malaysia

modstar, well, couples should not keep any secret from each other. Just joking. I know that it is very interesting to find out the new earning every time you log in to your account. Sometimes, I do logout and login again just to check whether MyLot has updated the latest earning or not.

LOL! No, I haven't done that on mylot because my husband isn't a member but I've done it in email because he didn't log out and I thought that I was the one logged in when I got back on the computer after doing something or other. I saw an email from his grown daughter and answered it. Then I saw one from my best friend's husband...who is also my husband's friend...and I wondered why he was emailing me about scooters? I finally noticed that I was in his email account! When I logged into mine my husband's daughter had sent the same email to me, too, so I responded....again...and told her what had happened. That's one of the many reasons she believes we're getting senile down here!

You know what? Once my colleague was using another colleague's notebook to send email. He was so blur that time. Once he touched the notebook, he saw that he was already in GMAIL, and he did not think much and straight away type an email to his girl friend! And of course, he was using my another colleague's account! We laughed so hard at him! He was so shy!

I don't ever logout of mylot... i'm the only one that uses this computer and i'm the only person in this house that has a mylot account... so i don't ever run into that problem...and i don't logout because i don't like too lol i'm too lazy to sign back in lol and since i'm the only person who uses it there is no need for me too either. i like just typing in mylot.com and hitting enter and already being singed in to mylot so i can just start posting and stuff.

Hi redsponge, Well it doenst happen to me for i am the only member of the family who like mylot, i even envited them to become a member of this site but they dont like it. They always said negative about this site ,like this site is wasting my time and effort for the money i earn here is too small and the electrical bill i pay is 10 tmes bigger of it. I just dont bother them for i am not aftering for the money here but for the learnings and the friendship is the most important of all. Earning is just a bonus for me. So i never tried of log out after using it out even in my office computer for nobody like mylot except me.

Hi Margarit, I got what you mean! My husband actually log in here to see what is so interesting about MyLot. He also said that the earning is too little! But well, I love to read opinions from people all over the world here! I think this is the greatest part about MyLot!

I hate having to log in to this, that and the other thing every time I go there, so not only do I not log out, I don't even close the tab. I just come back and what I want to work on is still open waiting for me. Lazy, ain't I?

Yea.For me this incident has happened. But not in mylot. It was in Yahoo. I didn't logout from my yahoo in a browsing center. The next person logged to that system and then hacked my Yahoo. This usually happens, if you a shared system. If it is personal pc, it won't be a problem since you only using that system. Better I'm recommending you to logout before leaving from browser. In your case, another person is your husband. So it won't be a problem to you.
