How to remove a Google Account from Google Chrome explained

Google Chrome allows its users to access their personal data from different devices at any time. With account synchronization, you can upload and save files from different devices with the same account and a shared cloud for your files. This is very convenient and safe, in case you lose your smartphone, you will always have access to the files that were made on the lost device.

However, at the same time, you can change your mind and switch to another browser or system. Or you may want to change your account to a new one, and then the question arises – how do I delete my old Google account? And in this article, you’ll find the answers.

How to remove a Google account from Chrome on desktop

If you are going to remove a Google account from Chrome on desktop, you should first launch the browser and click on the User Profile icon near the top-right corner. If you have added a photo to the Google account, you will find it there. Otherwise, it would be the initials of your name. If you don’t find both, it means a Google account has not been linked to the browser.

After that, the Chrome profile menu will open up. Next, click on the Settings icon next to the Other profiles label.

All of the profiles you created previously in Chrome will be on the list. Find the one you want to remove and click on the More (the three dots) button at the top-right corner of the profile.

Next, click the Delete option in the menu.

You will receive a confirmation box that shows the data that would be deleted from your device after removing the profile. Click on Delete at the bottom-right of the confirmation box to confirm removing the profile as well as the associated Google account.

The same action can be repeated with other accounts.
