I share my computer with someone who does not have a google account, I do not want them to be able to click on chrome and potentially access my saved data (ie. passwords/CC info). Everytime I attempt to logoff chrome (not my email, chrome itself), I only get the option to delete or change user. I just want my info off, do I have to delete my account each time or is there a way to just log my infomation off chrome?
UPDATE (11-Sep-2015): To be able to sign out an account, you need to set up at least one supervised account in Google Chrome (it can be even an account you never use). Once there's a supervised account, you can sign out of ANY account set up in your Chrome.
EARLIER, DOESNT WORK NOW: A sign out feature has been recently implemented, and works properly with Version 34 and later (locks profile; asks for password; unlocks with your Google Account password).
You need to "Enable new profile management system" under
The only thing to remember is to Lock your profile every time you leave the shared PC. I'm not aware of any auto-lock feature implemented so far.
First you go to the option on the top right corner, that just looks like 3 parallel lines. Click that, then choose the option 'Signed in as 'your account'" then that will open to a new page. on the newly opened page choose the option down near the bottom of the page and choose "delete user" this wont delete the account forever, you can sign in as many times as you want anywhere and just use the same process if you want to "sign out"
Hope this helped :)
The answer is simple: You do not give them your password to the computer.
Do not log off from Chrome (or any other programs). Just log off from windows.
And yes, I know this is not fully the answer you want to get. But it is the right one.
Click on the spanner on the top right
Where it says "signed in as XYZ@gmail.com" click
then select "disconnect your google account"
then press Ctrl + Shift + Delete and choose the combination of settings and the time frame required and clear all data
then its done.
alternatively use an incognito session in future
