How To Delete Your Google Cookies In Chrome

Clearing out cookies generally signs you out of all accounts, but Chrome makes one exception: your Google account.

This is new as of Chrome 69, but Google does not hide the change: it’s explained in the settings screen, as shown above. But what if you actually wanted to remove your Google cookies? It’s still possible according to Adrienne Porter Felt, an engineer and manager on the Chrome team (via Bleeping Computer):

After seeing this thread I’m starting to wonder why people are praising @__apf__ ‘s response to the Google login issue.

It’s apparent that Google pulled so many anti patterns, exploited assumptions and developed a dishonest tool/interface.

You can sign out, then clear those cookies.

That’s right: log out of your Google accounts.

Do that and the message about not logging you out of your Google accounts will disappear from the settings.

So why the change? It might be related to how Google accounts in Chrome work now, but Google hasn’t officially said anything. It seems obvious to me that Google wants Google users to stay logged in, which is fair enough. If you don’t want a browser that favors Google, consider using a browser made by someone other than Google.
