Question

How can I log out of Cnet on iPhone 7 on Safari

Safari on iPhone 7 will not let me log out. The log out option is hidden and won’t show. It is EXTREMELY frustrating. Come on Cnet! Fix your site! I have no trouble on my iPad Air 2.

Hi there, bouzoukiman!

Sorry for your frustrations.

Here's how to log out of CNET in Safari. When you are on cnet.com, click on the hamburger menu (3 vertical line icon) on the upper right of the CNET page.

Once the menu page is loaded at the bottom of the page, there should be a silhouette head icon, click on that and it should display another menu. In that menu, just click on "Sign out" and that will log you out of CNET.

Let me know if you additional clarification.

Cheers and again we apologize for your frustrations. Hope this helps.

Didn’t work. :-(

Lee, thanks for the help, but it didn’t work. I had already tried that, and I can see that menu, but the page scrolls up only part of the way. Because of that, the log out option won’t show on the screen because it’s at the very bottom of the menu. The last item I can see is “Cars”. Does this make sense? I wish I could attach a screenshot.

About screenshots.

Put them on imgur.com or another photo site and share the link to the image. I only have an iPhone 5s and 6 to test on so sorry.

Ah ha, I think I know what it is!

Is it because your iPhone 7 Display setting is set on "Zoomed"? I just tried it on my iPhone 7 with Safari and that is what I am experiencing. If that is the case, can you set it to Display Zoom to "Standard" temporarily and log out of CNET and set it back?

Let me know.
Thanks!

Yep, that’s what it was. *blush*

Woo hoo!!

Glad that was it, phew! I will mention this use case to our developers to take zoomed view into account.

Cheers and have a great day, bouzoukiman!
