To use a Chromebook without signing in, you can browse as a guest. Guest mode is useful if you want to:
- Let someone borrow your Chromebook.
- Borrow someone else’s Chromebook.
- Use a shared or public Chromebook, like at school or a library.
Sign in as a guest
- If you’re signed in to the Chromebook, sign out.
- At the bottom, click Browse as Guest.
Note: If you’re using your Chromebook at work or school and don't see "Browse as Guest," your administrator has turned off guest browsing. Only your administrator can turn it back on. For more help, contact your administrator.
- At the bottom right, select the time.
- Select Exit guest.
Note: Your files, cookies, website data, and browsing activity will be deleted.
