The Chrome browser can sometimes randomly sign users out from their Google account and all other logged-in websites due to various reasons. It mostly happens when reopening Chrome, but it can even happen while browsing sometimes.
As Chome signs you out from all your previous sign-ins, you would have to again log back into all your frequently used websites. Furthermore, if it is your work PC, it can take you minutes to re-login and set up your Chrome again.
If your browser keeps signing you out, we have covered information on what causes this issue and how you can solve it.
Why Does Chrome Keep Signing Me Out?
Here are all the probable reasons why your browser keeps signing you out:
- Disabled Cookies
- Misconfigured Settings
- Corrupted Cache
- Outdated Browser
- Bugs and glitches
How to Fix Chrome Browser Automatically Signing Out?
There are several ways in which you can fix this particular issue, depending on the cause. You can make your way down the list of fixes to see which works for you. Before you begin, make sure to restart your browser.
Make Sure Cookies Are Enabled
Furthermore, you don’t need to disable cookies manually for this to happen. Sometimes, your installed antivirus or security software can automatically disable cookies for you.
Here’s how you can enable cookies in Chrome browser:
- Click on the vertical ellipses in the top right.
- Select Settings.
- Navigate to Privacy and security > Cookies and other site data.
- Make sure Allow all cookies is selected.
Disable Clear Cookies and Site Data when You Close All Windows
This setting is similar to the one above as it also clears cookies and site data when closing Chrome. Furthermore, the setting itself states, “When on, you’ll also be signed out of Chrome.”
This setting may have been enabled by accident, but it can cause the issue of Chrome always signing you out. Follow the steps below to disable it:
- Click on the Chrome options menu and tap on Settings.
- Go to Privacy and security > Cookies and other site data.
- Make sure the “Clear cookies and site data when you close all windows” setting is toggled off.
Another reason this issue could be occurring is due to your browser cache being corrupted. Caches are bits of data stored in cache memory so the system can easily access them when needed.
However, caches are not cleared by default, and your browser could still be using old caches, which can cause bugs and errors. Furthermore, it is recommended to periodically clear caches.
Here’s how you can do so:
- Open Chrome settings using the method above.
- Go to Privacy and security and click on Clear browsing data.
- In the opened window, select Cached images and files and deselect all other options.
- Make sure All time is selected from Time range.
- Click on Clear data.
This issue was a bug in a specific version of Chrome browser. However, newer updates from the developers have included bug fixes for this issue.
If you are using an outdated version of Chrome, you can try updating your browser to the latest build to see if it fixes the issue.
Follow the steps below to check and update your browser to the latest:
- Click on the three dots in the top right corner.
- Select Help and About Google Chrome.
- Chrome will automatically search for and download any new updates.
- After Chrome downloads updates, click on the Relaunch button to finish the process.
Enable Allow Chrome Sign-in
When you disable this setting, you can sign in to Google websites with accounts other than the one logged into Chrome. If you have this setting disabled, it may look like you got signed out of all Google websites.
On the other hand, enabling this setting will sync your currently logged-in Chrome account to other Google websites and automatically log you into those Google services.
Here’s how you can do so:
- Click on the Chrome menu (vertical ellipsis icon) in the upper right.
- Select Settings.
- In You and Google, click on Sync and Google services.
- Toggle on Allow Chrome sign-in setting.
Reset Chrome Settings
Resetting Chrome settings will reboot your configured setting back to their default state. If any other misconfigured setting was causing your browser to keep signing you out, resetting your Chrome settings will help fix the issue. Furthermore, you will not lose any data during the process.
- Open Chrome settings using the method above,
- Go to Reset and clean up.
- Click on Restore settings to their original defaults.
- Select Reset Settings.
Create Another Chrome Profile
If none of the above methods worked, you can try creating another Chrome profile and start using it as your default. If you’d like to implement this method, here’s how you can create another Chrome profile.
- Click on your account profile in the upper right.
- Beside Other profiles, click on the gear icon.
- In the account selection window, click on Add and sign in with a new account.
If you would also like to remove your previous Chrome account from the browser, here’s how you can do so:
- Follow the above steps to go to the account selection window.
- Click on the three dots beside your previous account.
- Click on Delete and Delete again.
