Google chrome shared all my passwords with a friend!

 Share

So I was at a friends house, who is a bit of a prankster should you call it. He had a game on his computer that I wanted to play and he just wanted to browse the web. So we swapped computers. I didn't really know about chrome that well and didn't know how to create a chrome account to sync or save passwords etc. 

 

My friend logged in with his own account and bang, all my passwords were signed into his Google account and I have no way of changing this except with a few places that support two-factor authentication.

 

Chrome also allows users to view chrome passwords by typing in the admin password of the pc. My friend who well I no longer get along with because of this has changed my twitter to adult content, that's as much as I'm going to say, changed my facebook and obtained access to my password so he can log into anything. Is there any way to stop him from doing any more damage. Maybe chrome gives me an option to fully sign out of everything or something!!

 

Could really do with some help here, all comments appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I never had an account so would I need access to his computer to delete the accounts? My own google chrome is not linked. It just added all my passwords to his account.

In that case, change your passwords, report to FB and twitter that your account was hacked
