You can clear all local user data stored your Chrome device by resetting your Chrome device to its original factory state, also known as powerwash. This step might be helpful if you want to reset owner permissions or if you're experiencing issues with your user profile.
Follow these steps to reset your Chrome device to its original factory state:
- Click the status area in the lower-right corner, where your account picture appears.
- Select Settings and click Show advanced settings at the bottom of the page.
- Find the "Powerwash" section and click Reset.
- In the dialogue box that opens, select Restart.
You can also reset your Chrome device from the sign-in screen by holding down the keys Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R and clicking Restart.
After restarting your Chrome device, you should now see the setup screen. Follow the instructions on the screen to set up your Chrome device again. Make sure you sign in with your primary Google Account, because this account will be set as the owner account. See detailed setup instructions
