Why can't I log out of Exodus?
Because Exodus is a self-custody wallet and not an exchange account or web-hosted service, there's no traditional account to log out from.
Instead of an email and password, what identifies your wallet and your funds is your 12-word secret recovery phrase. Your 12-word secret recovery phrase is encrypted and stored on the device where you install Exodus.
Although there is no logout option in Exodus, you can protect your Exodus wallet with a password, so your wallet locks when you close it.
When your wallet is locked, it won't be possible for someone with your device to access your wallet or view the secret recovery phrase without the password.
How do I close and lock the Exodus app?
Whenever you're done with Exodus, close the application. If you have set a passcode for Exodus Mobile, then your wallet will lock when you close the app. For instructions on how to set a passcode, visit: How do I set a password in Exodus?
