Google Chrome offers users the ability to create and save multiple Google accounts. A user can easily switch between profiles while browsing. It's quite simple to add a Chrome profile to Google at any time, and it's just as easy to edit or remove it.

When you have more than one Google Chrome user profile, you can browse the web with different settings, depending on which profile you choose. For example, you can have a personal and a work profile to separate certain extensions, bookmarks, settings, browser history, themes and saved passwords.

How to delete your Google Chrome profile

Here's how to delete a Chrome profile:

  • Click on the Chrome profile icon located in the upper right corner of the browser. If you don't have a profile picture associated with your account, you'll see a circle that contains your initials. From the drop-down menu, click on the Settings symbol next to Other profiles.
  • You will see a new window showing all your active accounts. Hover your mouse over the profile you want to remove and click on the three dots in the top right corner of the box.
  • You will see a drop-down list with some options. Select Delete.
  • You will receive a notification to confirm your selection. Click Yes to remove the profile. The browser will take a few moments to process your request, then the profile will be permanently deleted from the Chrome browser.
