One of the benefits of signing in to Google Chrome is that it syncs all your data across all devices. You won’t have to sign in again for services like Gmail or Drive which can be quite time-saving.
Google Chrome sometimes logs users out of their accounts, but luckily it’s just a matter of following these steps to fix the issue.
The first thing you want to do if your Chrome keeps signing you out updates it.
On Windows: Click the three dots on the top right side of the browser, then click Help and finally click About Google Chrome. If there’s a new version available, you’ll see an Update button after hitting this option.
On Mac: You can find this by clicking “Google Chrome” on the top of your screen, then click on Preferences. You will see an Update button under the “About Google Chrome” tab.
On Linux: If you are using Chromium, type chrome://help in your address bar and hit Enter. There should be an option saying “About Chromium”. If you are using Chrome, type chrome://chrome in your address bar and hit Enter. Under the “Application Basics” tab, you will see an Update button.
If there is no update available or this issue still persists after updating it, continue to the next step.
Sometimes, this issue might occur when your computer is low on memory.
To fix it, restart your computer by either shutting down the system manually or using the Restart option in the Start Menu.
The next thing you should do is to clear cache.
On Windows: You can find Chrome’s Cache by opening the Run prompt (Windows + R) and typing %localappdata%\google\chrome\user data. There should be one folder named “Cache”. If there are files stored in this location, erase them and restart the computer.
On Mac: Open Finder and click on Go, then select “Go to Folder” and paste this: ~/Library/Caches. There should be one folder named “Chromium” or Chrome. Drag them into trash and restart your computer.
On Linux: Open a new Terminal window and type: ~/.config/google-chrome and press Enter. Then type rm -rf Cache/*, restart the system and check if that solved it.
Clear Cookies And Cache On Other Devices Google Chrome automatically sign in when signed into your account on other devices, but sometimes you might want to sign out for certain reasons. This setting can be done by opening Google Chrome and clicking the three dots on the top right side of your browser, then click Settings. Scroll down and find “People” section under “Advanced” tab. There should be an option that says: “Sign in to Chrome” or something similar; you can uncheck it and sign out from other devices as well.
Reset Chrome Settings
You can also reset Chrome Settings. Just go to “Settings” and click “Show advanced settings” on the bottom of the page, then scroll down and find Reset setting and click on it. There should be a warning about this action; just click “Reset” and restart your computer after that. If you are still facing this problem after that, then proceed to the next step.
Turn Off Chrome Sync
Since your data is probably already backed up on Google’s servers, you can turn off Chrome Sync by going to “Settings” and scroll down to find “Advanced” tab. Click on it and there should be an option saying: “Turn Off” under the “Sign in to Chrome” section. then again turn on chrome sync by going to settings again and click on the advanced option.
This should solve your problem. Chrome should stop logging you out.
Turn Off Your Chrome Extensions
Google Chrome works great, but there can be some technical problems that may come up. One of them is your Google Chrome will keep logging you out and you won’t know why. This can be a problem because you could forget where you last saved your work or what you were looking at before the browser logged out of itself. To prevent this from happening, you can turn off your Google Chrome extensions temporarily. This will allow you to turn them back on without having to log in before doing so.
- To do this, click the Customize and control icon next to the address bar, then go to More tools > Extensions.
- Here all of your extensions are listed. You can see what they do and turn them on or off.
- To turn them all off, simply select the box next to each one of them so that it says ‘off’ in green lettering.
- Once you have turned them all off, your Google Chrome will no longer log you out when you try to use it. You can turn them back on whenever you want.
Switching Account in Chrome
Sometimes your Google Chrome will keep logging you out because there are two accounts that have been signed into the browser. To fix this, you’ll need to switch between them and then log back into your usual account.
To do this, click on the Customize and control icon next to the address bar, then go to More tools > People.
Here you’ll see a list of all the people who have signed into Google Chrome. You may need to scroll down in order to find the right account.
Once you’ve found it, click on it and then log out by clicking Sign out. Then log back in using your preferred credentials. The browser will not just switch accounts for you so you’ll have to do it yourself.
Reinstall Google Chrome
Another thing that might be causing your Google Chrome browser to keep logging you out is a technical problem with the program itself. This issue isn’t very common but still needs to be mentioned as a possible solution, so we will go over it now. To fix this, try reinstalling Google Chrome.
To do this, go to the Customize and control icon next to the address bar, then choose Settings. In settings, look for an option that says ‘Repair’, ‘Reset’, or something along those lines. If you can’t find it anywhere in the browser settings, you might have to reinstall the program following these steps.
To reinstall Google Chrome, you’ll have to go to the Control Panel in Windows and find Add/Remove programs. Then uninstall it from there by clicking on Uninstall a program. Once that’s done, download a new copy of the browser from Google’s website if it is not already downloaded onto your computer.
