  • Sign out Chrome Sync and sign back in. To do this, click the wrench icon, then click options. Once a window appears, click Personal Stuff tab, press Stop syncing this account. Confirm by pressing Stop syncing. Note: Make sure to close your browser on your secondary machine(s) before you begin.
  • Change your Google account password.
