Should I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

If you do not logout but only clear the cookies then the website still stores your session ID, so best is to logout to ensure that the session ID is cleared as well and can't be reused.

If you are talking about websites that save your personal information (banks, stores . . .) we recommend logging out. Other sites that do not save your personal information (Mozilla, Youtube . . .) you don't need to log out of unless you want to.
