This is a work computer and I am leaving shortly. Whenever I open gmail in bookmarks, my email address and password are already in their boxes. Obviously, the new guy, or anyone for that matter, can easily access my account. I need to delete the info. Signing out does not work as it just reappears each time I sign in. Neither does selecting and deleting the info.
