I accidentally saved my password on MSN messenger on my iPod touch and I had to Google to find out how to log out/delete my saved password from messenger. Here is what I had to do:

  1. Launch MSN messenger on your iPod Touch. You are logged onto MSN and landed on “Social” section.
  2. On the top left of the screen, there is your MSN profile picture.
  3. Tap on your profile image, menu displays:
    Profile | Change Picture | Status info (i.e. Available).
  4. Tap on your status info (i.e. Available), “My status” menu appears with options:
    – Available
    – Busy
    – Away
    – Appear offline
    Sign out from here
  5. Tap on option: “Sign out from here”.
    Message “Are you sure you want to sign out of Messenger” appears with option: Yes or No.
  6. Tap on “Yes”. MSN login screen appears.
  7. Remove your password using [x] on keyboard and uncheck “Remember my password” checkbox if it’s selected.

It logged me out of my standalone MSN messenger – arghh!
