How Do I Log Out of the Apple Store?

If you are using a public computer to shop on the Apple Store, signing out at the end of your session protects your identity. You can sign out of the Apple Store on a Web browser by clicking the "Sign Out" button in the user icon drop-down menu. You may also want to sign out of the Apple Store app you have installed on a mobile device if other people might use the device. Signing out of your Apple ID in Settings signs you out of the app.

Use the "Sign Out" button before leaving the Apple Store website to make sure no one else can access your account.
