After visiting, my son left for a trip to Europe. He had been using my computer past two days. Now I can’t log in at my email. Whenever I open Chrome and go to Gmail, it shows his account. How can I check my Gmail email?
Hey Loreen, from what I gather, your son logged on to his Gmail account using Chrome web browser and saved his account information on the computer. Now whenever you launch Gmail, the service shows the account which was last used. This is not a serious issue at all.
You can quickly regain access of your account and check Gmail email once again. And all this can be done in a few mouse clicks. Here is how you go about it.
There can be two scenarios if your account isn’t listed. Your son has logged your out, or he has removed your account information. I don’t think he would have done the latter. In either case, there is no need to fret. You can still get to check your Gmail account.
Click on thebutton in the menu.
This should bring up a page similar to the one below in which all the accounts are listed. Select yours and enter the password if required.
However, if the amount wasn’t listed, you need to set it up again. Click
If prompted, remember to save the password of your account for quicker access next time.
