Getting rid of the new "Choose an account" function?1 Recommended Answer
If you're not understanding what I mean, sign out of your email account, and try to sign back in. You'll see this thing that is titled with "choose an account," and has your account, and any other accounts signed in on that computer. Then, if you want to sign in with another account, it makes you (I guess I would call it) register that account on the computer, to be visible the next time you log on.
I understand how this is a useful function, but I would like to have the option not to do it. Is there any way around that?
So, in order to NOT add an account, I have to click on "Add account".
After pressing add account, make sure the "Stay signed in" checkbox is not checked and the account is NOT added.
This is so counter-intuitive that it boggles the mind.
It is as if I went up to an ATM to make a withdrawal, but the only way to do so was to click on a button labeled "Deposits".
Add a new button that says something like "Log in from a public computer" and everyone would be happy.
Have you done the first suggestion? If your pc was set to never remember then that is what it should do. https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95606?hl=en
On public computers they should be set to always ask but you can always carry a browser on a usb stick.. This is the safest way as you don't need to type in passwords which a key logger can copy and if you take your laptop with (can still be read by remote key loggers) I would suggest using KeyScrambler Personal which you'll only need to switch on when in a public area.
