What to do if your computer was stolen

Clear browsing data

If you are signed in to Chrome on the stolen device, clear your browsing data (including history, passwords, etc), as this will update to all synced devices. Make sure you’re also signed in to Chrome on the device where you clear your browsing data.

Sign out of Chrome remotely

You can remove access to Google services on your stolen device through the My Account page. This should stop the stolen machine from having access to everything that's connected to your Google account, including Chrome. However, your locally saved Chrome profile data will still be available, so remove your browsing data before signing out.
