Stay signed in or out of your Google Account
When you stay signed in to your account, you can use Google services soon as you open them. For example, you can quickly check your email in Gmail or see your past searches in Chrome.
Stay signed in
If Google keeps signing you out, here are some steps you can try:
- Make sure cookies are turned on. Some antivirus or related software may delete your cookies.
- If your cookies are turned on, clear your browser's cache. Note: While deleting your cookies may resolve the problem, it will also remove your saved settings for sites you've visited.
- Make sure you’re using the latest version of your browser.
- Use a browser like Chrome to remember passwords for you.
- If you use 2-Step Verification, add trusted computers.
Stay signed out
When you sign in to your Google Account, you'll stay signed in until you sign out.
If you're using a public computer or someone else's device:
- Browse in private.
- When you’re done, close all private browsing windows. You'll be automatically signed out.
Stay signed out of non-Google accounts
These tips can help you stop non-Google accounts from automatically signing you in.
- Turn off saved passwords in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Windows Internet Explorer. Make sure your recovery info is updated for your Google Account and other services you use.
- Clear your browser's cache and cookies. Note: While deleting your cookies may resolve the problem, it will remove your saved settings for sites you've visited.
Sign out of someone else’s device
Important: If your password is saved to someone else’s device, change your password. That way, someone else won’t be able to sign in to your account.
- Go to Recently used devices.
- Select a device.
- Select Remove.
