Can I log out from Google Chrome in a remote PC where I signed in. I logged in the library PC on my Google Chrome but forgot to log out.

How can I log out from the library PC from home?

@metal gear solid. Why don't you go back over some of your old questions and set them to answered (where possible?) 44% is very low. –  Lee Taylor Nov 29 '12 at 18:14

Very easy, you must go to Security settings, then you just change your password and this will log all computers out of anything to do with your Google chrome account and it also stops that computer logging back in if the password was saved on that computer, until you get back to that computer station again.

I guess this is the best option, which lets you keep your chrome data. But, does this remove the data from the remote chrome? –  Rahul Thakur Oct 12 '14 at 1:26

Note, that this would log you out of all your Chrome browsers in all PCs, and you may loose your syncing data.

Go to Google Accounts dashboard. Scroll down to Chrome sync and then click on Stop sync and delete data from Google.

I guess you mean, you wish to log out of sites within Google Chrome.

Only a few sites currently allow you to remotely sign out, such as:

Chrome Remote Desktop is a new Chrome extension that lets you remotely control a computer from your browser. However, it requires that you have entered a one-time authentication code on the second computer (library PC) prior to first usage.

Well, Chrome itself can be signed into Google's Sync service. –  slhck Apr 24 '12 at 13:30

Log in to Google Dashboard

You can find Google Sync Option. Beside to it you can find "Stop sync and delete data from google"

By doing this you can log out of the Google Chrome. But this will affect the Sync between your setting.

If you are worried about someone accessing your email, log into your gmail, scroll to the bottom of the screen, off to the right there will be a line saying "Last account activity X time ago" Under that is a link to details. Click the link, and you will be presented with recent activity for your account. At the top there will be a link to log out all sessions, except the one you are on. This will prevent anyone from accessing your email, except from your current session. Please refer to attached photoenter image description here

Does this sign out from chrome also? The question was for chrome and not gmail. Has anyone tested this? –  Rahul Thakur Oct 12 '14 at 1:25

To remotely log out of Chrome's browser sync, you can revoke access to Google Chrome in your account permissions settings. This will prevent someone else from using that browser to delete your bookmarks, for example, but it won't clear bookmarks, cookies, or saved passwords from that browser. (Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like any of the other options here guarantee that either.)

If you've forgotten to sign out of Gmail on another computer, you can sign out of your other sessions by going to the bottom right corner of Gmail, clicking Details, and then Sign out all other sessions.

The question is about Chrome, not Gmail. Flagging as "not an answer" as it does not attempt to address the question as written. –  DragonLord Feb 12 at 23:55
Seems like an appropriate answer, but it has been asked above if this actually works. No confirmation yet. –  bozdoz Apr 27 at 9:52
For example, this site suggests this works: mobile.geek.com/android/… –  bozdoz Apr 27 at 9:54
