Users can now disable the Google Chrome auto log-in feature but must opt-out of the auto log-in tool — here’s how to turn it off…
With the release of Chrome 69 came a new look in its Material Design. It sported a brighter background and featured rounded tabs. Chrome 69 also brought the ability to customize the New Tag page. And, the Omnibox shows in-line results, rather than opening a new page.
But, any time someone uses Chrome 69 to log into a Google service, such as Gmail or YouTube, it automatically logs that same person into the Chrome browser by default.

Of course, users weren’t happy about the forced log-in tool. In fact, Chrome manager Adrienne Porter Felt clarified the feature by saying it only shows someone is logged-in but it does not sync activities.
With Chrome version 70, that’s changing. The latest iteration not only includes security upgrades, it also allows people to opt out of automatic log-ins.
