<SignOutButton>

The <SignOutButton> component is a button that signs a user out. By default, it is a <button> tag that says Sign Out, but it is completely customizable by passing children.

SignOutOptions

The type of the signOutOptions prop for the <SignOutButton> component is defined as follows:

NameTypeDescription
sessionId?stringThe ID of a specific session to sign out of. Useful for multi-session applications.

How to use the <SignOutButton> component

Basic usage

app/page.js
import { SignOutButton } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { return ( <div> <SignOutButton /> </div> ); }
pages/index.js
import { SignOutButton } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { return ( <div> <SignOutButton /> </div> ); }

Custom usage

You can create a custom button by wrapping your own button, or button text, in the <SignOutButton> component.

app/page.js
import { SignOutButton } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { return ( <div> <SignOutButton> <button>Sign out</button> </SignOutButton> </div> ); }
pages/index.js
import { SignOutButton } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { return ( <div> <SignOutButton> <button>Sign out</button> </SignOutButton> </div> ); }

Multi-session usage

Sign out of all sessions

Clicking the <SignOutButton> component signs the user out of all sessions. This is the default behavior.

Sign out of a specific session

You can sign out of a specific session by passing in a sessionId to the signOutOptions prop. This is useful for signing a single account out of a multi-session (multiple account) application.

In the example below, the sessionId is retrieved from the useAuth() hook. If the user is not signed in, the sessionId will be null, and the user is shown the <SignInButton> component. If the user is signed in, the user is shown the <SignOutButton> component, which when clicked, signs the user out of that specific session.

app/page.tsx
"use client" import { SignInButton, SignOutButton, useAuth } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { const { sessionId } = useAuth(); if (!sessionId) { return ( <div> <SignInButton /> </div> ); } return ( <div> <SignOutButton signOutOptions={{ sessionId }} /> </div> ); }
pages/index.tsx
import { SignInButton, SignOutButton, useAuth } from "@clerk/nextjs"; export default function Home() { const { sessionId } = useAuth(); if (!sessionId) { return ( <div> <SignInButton /> </div> ); } return ( <div> <SignOutButton signOutOptions={{ sessionId }} /> </div> ); }
