Google Chrome - Sign out of or Remove a Person from Chrome

To stop recording your history, bookmarks, and settings to your Google Account, sign out of Chrome.

To erase someone's Chrome data (including history, bookmarks, and passwords) from a computer, remove their profile from Chrome. For example, if you sign into Chrome on someone else's computer, we recommend removing your profile from Chrome before you leave.

Sign out of Chrome

When you sign out, your data will stop syncing to your Google Account. By default, the data you create while signed in will remain on the device. After you sign out, new data and changes you make in Chrome won't sync.
