On your next visits to gmail.com, you will be asked to sign in with your email. To remove an email from 'this list' (for example, if you've been sitting on someone else's computer), you'll need to do a few steps:

  1. Click Remove an account.
    Gmail - 'Remove an account' button
  2. Click on the minus icon in a circle to the right of your email address.
    Gmail - 'Remove an account' icon
  3. Click Yes, remove to confirm the removal.

If you're accessing Gmail from someone else's computer, you can also open a Private (Incognito) window and use it to access your email. In that case, when you close the private window, your email account information is not saved on your computer.
