Occasionally, when you log into your lynda.com account, you may see this already logged in message. This simply means you were logged into your account from another computer or browser recently and didn't log out. For example, maybe you were watching a lynda.com video while at home. And then an hour ago, when you try to log in from your work computer, you'll see this message indicating that your account is still logged in on your home computer. Just click Yes to log your account out of whichever other computer you were previously logged into and to log yourself into your current computer. You're always free to access your Lynda.com account from as many computers as you like, but you can only access from one computer at a time.
To prevent this message from appearing in the future, just make sure you click Log Out whenever you're done with your current session.
