Digital Citizenship Week Tip: Logging Out of Chrome

As it's Digital Citizenship Week, I thought I'd share some of the tips, tricks and resources I'm sending out staff and students, here on the blog. Today's tip - how to log out of Chrome.

Chrome is a web browser you likely use to surf the web and access your Google accounts.  I love Chrome because it's always up to date and I don't have to have my own device to access my bookmarks and extensions. Just sign in and it's all at hand instantly.

Unfortunately, while it’s an incredibly convenient and powerful tool, there are so many students who often make the mistake of leaving themselves signed in, thus leaving themselves and their data open to others.  To prevent this from happening all students must know how to:
  • Sign themselves out, and
  • Remove their account

Click here for a quick screencast showing you how to securely sign out and remove your account profile.  

Also as a reminder, if you notice that someone else has left themselves signed in, be a good digital citizen and do them a favour:   sign-them out and remove their profile.
