Are you able to access Confluence Cloud even after logging out?

When logging out of Confluence Cloud, I an others are still able to access spaces and navigate around the site despite being logged out. How is this possible, and how can it be stopped?

Your site has enabled "anonymous access", which lets unknown users see your spaces.  I'm not sure if you can turn it off globally on Cloud (check the "global permissions"), but you can certainly remove it from any spaces - check each space permissions for the anonymous access tick box.

Thanks...I did find where to turn it off globally (Users & Security/Global Permissions) and that seemed to have done it. Thanks again.
