Having your Gmail password cracked is a pain. (We know because it happened to us last fall).
You’re locked out of your account, while spam is blasted to all your contacts.

The app works with Facebook too, which we used to test Sign Me Out with. Somehow we were logged in from six locations, but they all seemed legit:
