Login reverting to wife's & I cannot edit privacy on my own profile [closed]

+2 votes
Following one of the suggestions about the new EU privacy rules, my wife joined WT today to preserve her file (living with DNA info). She has her own email address.

I "cleared history"; didn't help. Help file for "log out" states to use the logout button in upper right corner of WT -- there is none -- and the red x button on the window closes it but when I even key in www.wikitree.com it recognizes my computer (we have only one) but not me.

None of the profiles that I manage are now open to me.

The logout link doesn't show up when you are in G2G, but if you go to the homepage or your profile and go to the "My WikiTree" menu, the very last option should be "Logout".
Also check to see if your web browser (Chrome, Firefox etc) has saved the password for your wife's profile. If it has, it will automatically login to hers when you start. Check your browser options under Security and delete that login if you find it. Once it is gone, you should both be able to log in manually each time (just don't agree to save the password if asked the next time).
A half hour after I posted this I found the "log out" at the bottom of the pull down under "my wikitree" -- As the list is so long the last few never show unless I carefully go down very slowly so that the list doesn't disappear.

Problem solved for me and things now working correctly.

But the help menu under "log out" states upper right corner of the WT main screen -- must be a older thing that was later changed.

Jamie -- I only went to G2G to ask the question.

Mike -- I never save any passwords -- security precaution

Thanks both of you for answering
