Sync bookmarks, extensions, and apps in the Google Chrome web browser

Watch How to Sign in to Chrome brings your bookmarks, history, and settings to all of your devices.



With Chrome's sign-in feature, you no longer need to fret about your bookmarks or apps being "stuck" on one computer. When you sign in to the Chrome browser or a Chrome device, your bookmarks, extensions, apps, theme, and other browser preferences are saved and synced to your Google Account. You can then load these settings anytime you use Chrome on other computers and devices.

Follow these steps to sign in:

  1. On a trusted computer, open Google Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click the Profile icon next to the three verticle dots.
  3. Select Turn on sync...
  4. Sign in to your Google Account in the dialog that appears.  
    Use your account
  5. A new window will appear asking "Link your Chrome data to this account?" Select Link Data.
  6. In the "Turn on sync" dialog that appears, choose what you want to sync.
  7. Optional: Advanced encryption settings
    • You can choose to encrypt your synced data. By default, your Google Account password is used to encrypt saved passwords. You can change it to encrypt all your synced data.
    • You can choose to use your own passphrase instead of the Google Account password. If you change your encryption method on one computer, you might receive a sync error notification on other computers where you’re syncing your data. Enter the new passphrase on other computers to resolve the error.
  8. Click OK.
