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 Guest.

Note: If there's a supervised user on your computer, guest mode isn't available when all non-supervised profiles are locked.

Leave guest mode

Close the guest mode browsing window.

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