Google API has a BUG

Recently i was checking Google federated login API implementation with Zoho. While using Google login facility with Zoho I encountered a BIG error. I logged in to Zoho with "Sign in using Google" facility. After using it when i logged out of Zoho, I found that i was still logged in in my Google account. Looks like this api has logged me in my Google account also in the background. This is a BIG bug in a country like India where maximum internet users use public places for internet access.

As you have mentioned, this is a problem for users who login to Zoho via third party Identity Providers(IDP) like Google/Yahoo.There is no standard mechanism yet to logout users from these IDPs also when they logout from Zoho.

To overcome this Zoho plans shortly to show an information page with the respective IDP's logout URL link when a such an user logs out of Zoho. For example, when a user who has signed in to Zoho via Google does logout from Zoho, he will be shown an information page which will have a Google logout URL link which he can click if required.
