Sign out of or remove a person from Chrome

To stop recording your history, bookmarks and settings to your Google account, sign out of Chrome.

To erase someone's Chrome data (including history, bookmarks and passwords) from a computer, remove their profile from Chrome. For example, if you sign into Chrome on someone else's computer, we recommend removing your profile from Chrome before you leave.
