Do I have to sign out? Can't I just close my browser?

Your security is important to us. Newer Internet browsers may still be shutting down in the background even though they have "closed" on the computer screen. Your online session does not end until the browser has completed all shut-down processes. If another user re-opens the browser before it has completely shut down, the session could remain active. To prevent other users from viewing your account information, make sure to select "Log Out". This is especially important if you use a public computer.




If you did not find the information you need, enter a descriptive word or phrase in the Search field located in the upper right corner. Or send us an e-mail by clicking on "Contact the Secretary of State" also in the upper right corner and we will help you get the information you need.
