    Re: Log in and log out

    Are "logged in" and "logged out" correct as well (in the past context, of course)?

    Re: Log in and log out

    Yes. Here's a bonus tip: the noun and adjective login refers to the ensemble of activities and states related to logging in. For example, you may have a successful or unsuccessful login depending on whether you used the correct login credentials.

    This usage follows a common pattern where the two words comprising a phrasal verb are combined to create a noun, adjective, or adverb. Other examples include lookup, standby, ​holdout, and many others.

    Could I ask members what ideas or principles they have concerning these forms? Apart from the way they're written, what might be the differences, if there are any? Which form is preferable?
