I have two (or more) users that appear to have Google Chrome Browser profiles on my computer. I want to delete them, they shouldn't be here.

Step-by-step guide


Here are the steps to be taken to remove a user from Google Chrome browser:

  1. In Chrome, select 3-line Menu button in the top right corner of the browser window
  2. Select Settings
  3. Under the "People" heading you'll see a User list, 2 checkboxes, and 4 buttons
  4. Select the user in the list you wish to delete
  5. Make sure you are listed as a user
    1. If you're not, go ahead and click the "Add person..." button, and 
    2. complete the information requested.
  6. Click the "Remove..." button while the errant user is highlighted
  7. A dialog box appears with the text "Are you sure you want to remove "username" and all associated Chrome data from this computer? This cannot be undone."
  8. Click on the "Remove" button
  9. The user should now be gone from the list (above)
  10. You may close the "Settings" tab you're in
