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.

Others can see some information

Guest mode stops Chrome from saving your browsing activity.

Your activity might still be visible to:

  • Websites that you visit, including the ads and resources used on those sites
  • Your employer, school or whoever runs the network that you’re using
  • Your Internet service provider

If you sign in to an account to use a web service, such as Gmail, your browsing activity might be saved on sites that recognise that account.
