Log-in

This is the process of logging in, for instance to use a computer or an online service. This process usually serves to advise the system that a session is about to start now, and that users would like to be connected to one of their user accounts, e. g. their e-banking account.


Log-out

This is when users log out of systems. Users instruct the system to terminate the current session this way.
