The bookmarklet uses your private key for authorization when creating new tasks. It’s wise not to add it to public browsers!

If the bookmarklet ends up in a browser where it shouldn't be, you can sign out of all tools across browsers.

Go to Settings and from the Tools tab, click Sign out of tools.

Sign out and disable the Bookmarklet from Settings.

After that, any bookmarklets you've added will be disabled.

You’ll need to re-add the bookmarklet to your browser to start using it again.
