You can save numerous Google accounts in Google Chrome so you may quickly switch between personas while browsing.
A Google account can be readily added to Chrome at any time and removed just as quickly.
You can delete a Google account by accessing and utilizing the settings menu in your browser, regardless of whether it was a former work account that you no longer use or a friend’s account that they briefly used on your computer.
While you’re about it, you might also want to turn off automatic log-in, which launches Chrome whenever you connect to a Google service like Gmail.
Here’s how to do it on your desktop.
How to remove an account from Google Chrome
- Open Chrome on your Mac or PC.
- From any webpage, click on your circular profile picture in the upper-right corner of the Chrome window.
- Once you click your picture, a menu will open. Click the gear icon next to Other Profiles near the bottom of this menu.
- Click the three dots in the top right corner of the account you want to remove and click Delete in the small drop-down menu that appears.
- You’ll see a pop-up asking you to confirm you want to delete that profile, so click Delete in the bottom right corner. Your browser will take a moment to process the request, and then will remove the Google account.
