Hi there, I have been experiencing problems having my cpanel logged out totally in Google Chrome, when I login once and logout after that, I login back again, this time I was automatically logged in and cpanel did not prompt me for any userid or password, I did not set chrome to auto save password and have deleted cookies also but the problem persists.

The problem was solve only when I restart the browser which everything go back to normal, any idea??

WebKit based browsers, both Safari and Chrome, do not support logging out of HTTP Basic Authentication sessions. If you have root access to WHM, enable the following tweak setting to work around this browser behavior:


Disable Http Authentication for cPanel/WebMail/WHM Logins (forces cookie authentication.) This will help prevent certain types of XSRF attacks that rely on cached Http Auth credentials.
