In Chrome 69, Google added a new UI that shows your avatar ("Gmail profile picture") in the top section of the browser even if you haven't signed into Chrome.

I liked the old UI better, and I hate having my profile picture there all the time.

How can I remove my profile picture from Chrome?


Old answer:

You can do this by reverting to the old Chrome UI. Go to chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md and change the dropdown setting to "Normal", then restart the browser.

New answer:

Google has removed the above flag, so that method no longer works.
