  1. Nice to know; but why would someone want the stop auto login?

    1. Because it’s a security hazard. Someone takes your laptop, opens your browser, boom- you’re logged in to whatever account chrome can.

  2. This doesn’t work.

    Chrome has been doing a new thing as of about 6-8 months ago where it’s logging in to gmail automatically. Autofill is off. I clear the cache, history, cookies, etc. every time but Chrome still does it.

    I installed a little applet to prevent it, but it’s now doing it again. And it started doing it for Amazon as well. (And probably a bunch of other sites).

    1. Hi Jason,

      Were you able to get a resolution for it? We are facing the same issue. Autofill is off, but still signs in automatically.

        What if the cookie is already present – tried deleting cookies and see if it still logs you in automatically?

      2. This was a while ago, but I think I had whitelisted google drive in my browser settings. I wanted it to only work for drive but it was affecting all google services. Maybe look there.
