Removing user information is simple: Powerwash is designed just for that.

Settings>>show advanced settings>>Powerwash.  Save the contents of Downloads Folder to Google Drive first, as that folder gets wiped too.

Hello Joan,

Welcome to Chromebook Central! :)

Your question is a bit vague, are you wanting to clear the saved login information for websites? If so, you can clear that via the following:

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.
  4. Click Manage saved passwords in the "Passwords and forms" section to see a list of all the usernames and passwords that have been saved.
  5. Hover over the site whose password you'd like to remove and click the X that appears on the right.
If you're wanting to remove a Google account off the Chromebook login screen:

  1. On the sign-in screen, click the account you want to remove.
  2. Click the downward arrow icon in the upper-right corner of the account picture.
  3. Select "Remove this user."
Let us know if you have any other questions or if I misunderstood what you're asking. Cheers!

Joan : You do not need to do a Powerwash! Please read the attached Google Help document, and expand the "Delete saved passwords" section.

Selden is correct.  I mistook your intent for wanting to turn the Chromebook over to someone else.
