How to Remove Personal Information from Google Chrome

We save a lot of information in our browsers while surfing the Internet. Usually while using the internet daily we save our logins, payment methods, or addresses to easily access this information for later use. Google Chrome and other browsers provide us this option to save your information for later use. Normally, there is no issue in saving this data but while using a public computer such as an office computer it is a good idea to remove personal information from Google Chrome or other browsers.

After you log in your Google account into your browser in a new device it can sync the personal information present in your account to the browser. You can turn off sync or logout your account to remove this information. However new information such as login credentials you saved for websites still might stay saved in the browser. You might just want to remove some specific personal information from your Account.

By using other methods such as resetting chrome can remove this information completely but you might want to save some information. Using incognito mode is another method to not store personal information in Google Chrome. However, Incognito mode will not remove the old information saved in Chrome.
