Title:Is it possible to logout of the web interface and login as another user?
FAQ ID:F0103

Description:User would like to know if it is possible to add the ability to logout of the web interface (i.e. make the web server "forget" the current username and password) and login as another user. 

Solution:

Unfortunately, HTTP authentication doesn't allow for this. Although some logout hacks seem to work with certain browsers, this cannot be done in a reliable manner for all browsers.

This being the case, the only way to "logout" of the interface is to close all instances of your browser.
