Logging out of the new Reddit app can be a little tricky for most of the users. That’s because the logout option is buried deep inside in the new version of Reddit for iPhone and Android. This is certainly annoying for those trying to figure out how to sign out of Reddit on mobile devices.
Why should I log out?
You may find the need to log out when you want to sign in with a different account. Though you also have the option to add account without requiring to logout of your existing account on Reddit.
Moreover, the Reddit app now comes with an Anonymous mode that allows users to browse anonymously. This mode is similar to Incognito Mode wherein you appear logged-out without actually logging out of your main account. Note that you won’t be able to vote, comment or post when using Reddit anonymously.
Perhaps, if you still want to logout from your Reddit account on a mobile device, then that’s possible. Let’s see how it can be done.
How to sign out of Reddit app on iPhone
- Tap Snoo icon (Reddit mascot) at the top left. You can also swipe from the left of the screen to open the menu pane.
- Tap your Reddit username to view the logged-in accounts. The current logged-in account will have a blue tick-mark icon next to it.
- Tap the exit icon (door with a right arrow) appearing next to the blue tick.
- Now tap “Logout” to sign out from your account. Similarly, you can log out of multiple accounts one by one, if needed.
Note: The above steps are similar for Reddit app for Android. However, they are applicable only for the official Reddit app.
That said, we feel Reddit should ease the steps involved just to log out of their app.
