- On the sign-in screen, click the profile that you want to remove.
- In the upper-right corner of the profile picture, click the Down arrow .

If your Chromebook is running low on space, the profile that has been inactive the longest will be removed from your Chromebook automatically.
If this happens, the Google account itself, and any data and settings synced with the account, will still exist. However, any items that this person saved to your Chromebook, such as downloaded files, will be deleted.
