How to Disable Sign Into Chrome?

Discussion in 'Google' started by Corwin, Jun 25, 2013.

    The latest version of the Google Chrome browser has a very irritating feature - if you are not signed into Gmail, upon startup you are always presented with a "Sign Into Chrome" nag tab.

    Well, the whole world doesn't live and die by GMail and I have users that use the corporate email system and not GMail. Many people (gasp!) do not even have a gmail account!

    Despite that, when these people start Chrome there is a "Sign into Chrome" nag screen.

    Anybody know how to disable that screen on startup?

    Open the "Preferences" file from your profile* and edit the "sync_promo" section.
    (...) "sync_promo": { "startup_count": 6, "view_count": 4 }, (...)
    And add "user_skipped": true (don't forget the comma at the end of the line)
    Find the information in this YouTube video. So, thanks to Vlăduţ Frăţiman.
    • profile path: open chrome://version/ or C:\Users\user-name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences in Windows 7. You can use Notepad to edit it.

    You'll able to get that option at "Customize and control Google Chrome" >> Settings >> Sign in >> Disconnect your Google Account.

    Thanks. This does it. Unfortunately I can't use this in an enterprise environment, although maybe I can make an install file that can do it...

    BTW, Disconnect your Google Account doesn't work because no Google account is connected.
