Auto login from a merchant site

When I buy something on a merchant's website and choose to pay with PayPal, I am automatically logged in to my PayPal account.  I turned off "auto login" but that did not resolve the problem.  Just because I am logged into a merchant site, it doesn't mean I want to also be logged into PayPal.  That's way too much of a security risk.  How can I fix it other than cancelling my account?

Sounds as if you have agreed to auto log in x1 and so it saved in your browser settings.

Go to your browser settings > security and remove paypal from the list of agreed auto log ins.
