Browse Chrome as a guest

In Guest mode, you won't see or change any other Chrome profile's info. When you exit Guest mode, your browsing activity is deleted from the computer.

Guest mode is ideal for:

  • Letting others borrow your computer, or borrowing someone else’s computer.
  • Using a public computer, like one at a library or cafe.

If you want to browse privately on your own computer, use Incognito mode. You'll see your info and settings without saving any browsing history.

Open Guest mode

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click Profile Profile.
  3. Click Open Guest Window.

Note: If there's a supervised user on your computer, Guest mode isn't available when all non-supervised profiles are locked. Learn how to lock your profile.

Leave Guest mode

At the top right, click Guest Guest mode and then Exit Guest.

Your browsing history, cookies, and site data will be deleted.
