Truly sign someone out?

P: n/a
Good morning all, Happy Friday!

We have an ASP.net app. There is a sign out button which effectively signs
a user out. A bug however is when the user clicks the back button; they can
see the values from their last session. We would like to blank these out.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Chris

Set the page to expire.

Set the page to expire.


And, as well as important, use HTTP POST requests (make the "sign out"
button a form submit button, use CSS to style it if needed) instead of
GET. With GET, expire will bear almost no meaning to the Back feature
since the UA retrieves the content from the local cache then.
