When you sign in to Chrome with your Google account, a lot of your personal information is saved and synced across all your devices, but what if you want to delete everything stored in the cloud? Here’s how to delete your synced information.

How to delete synced information

If you’re already signed in to Chrome and sync is turned on, launch Chrome, click your profile picture, and then click “Sync with.” You can also type chrome://settings/people in the omnibox and press Enter.

Under the People heading, click “Google and sync services.”

Next, click on “Chrome Sync Data” and a new tab will open.

If you’re not signed into Chrome on this device, you can still delete all of your information from Google’s servers by going to your Google account’s sync settings page, and sign in through your browser—it doesn’t even have to be Chrome! !

Once you’ve entered your email and password, you’ll be greeted with a list of all the types of information stored in the cloud. Next to each entry is a number indicating how many of each are currently synced.

Scroll to the bottom until you see “Reset Sync.” Click on it to delete all information from Google’s servers.

Note: Clicking this button does not delete anything that is stored locally on your device. Clears everything stored in the cloud and turns off cross-device syncing when signed in to Chrome with this account. The copy of the information stored in other devices will not be deleted either.

Click OK.”

After clicking OK, a message appears notifying you that sync has been cleared and disabled.

If you also want to get rid of absolutely everything stored on your local machine, you can clear all browsing data from your browser settings. You can do this by typing chrome://settings in your Omnibox and pressing Enter. Once in the Settings tab, scroll to the bottom and click on “Advanced”.

Scroll down a bit more until you see “Clear browsing data”. Click on it.

Next, click on “Advanced”, choose “All the time” from the drop-down menu, check all the information you want to remove from your browser, and then click on “Clear data”.

Follow the prompts, and everything you’ve saved, done, or viewed in Google Chrome will be erased from your browser. The next time you fill out a form, try to log in, want to go to that site you visited last week, you’re going to have to dig a little deeper into your physical memory to complete these tasks.
