Hi all. Apologies if this is the wrong forum. I didn't know where to put the post, and I'm currently using win10.


I recently had a laptop stolen. I was still logged in to my Google account on that laptop. I want to delete my chrome browsing history, so whoever found it can't work out which bank I use etc.

Does anyone know how to do this? I thought logging in to my account via another laptop and deleting the chrome history would do it. But it seems that only deletes the chrome history on that particular machine.

What I really want is to delete all my chrome history on all devices.

See this from the Google help forum. I think the stolen computer needs to have syncing active in order to delete the synced data using a different computer.


I believe your first priority would be to change your passwords. I would also notify each of your banking sites, especially if the Google account was open when stolen. The person could go to the banking site found in history and request a password change. It would be a good idea to change the email account on all your banking and internet purchase sites.
