1.) With a new profile, enter a name and password into http://mail.yahoo.com. 2.) Elect to save the info. 3.) Tasks>Privacy>Password Manager>Log out. What happens: An alert states "Your sensitive information is now locked" What is expected: Since I was never logged in, and the sensitive data is only obscured, I should not get this alert, or better, the words "Log out" would not be enabled.
I think this is password manager code.

There are two different state variables here, and the wording doesn't make that clear. 1. Encrypted versus Obscurred If you have any saved sensitive information, is it encrypt or is it obscurred 2. Logged In versus Logged Out If your sensitive information is encrypted or you have any certs, can you get to them The "logged out" and "locked" refer to the second state variable and has nothing to do with whether your sensitive information happens to be currently encrypted or obscured. I mention all this as an argument against the reporter's statement that "logout" should not be enabled when the data is not encrypted. So the correct wording on this dialog should be: "You are now logged out and will not be able to access any encrypted information"
