Google Chrome basics and AODocs recommendations

Google Chrome Profile

Google Chrome allows you to sign into your browser with your Google Account to synchronize your bookmarks, extensions, history, passwords, and other settings on all your devices.
Learn more about Google Chrome Sync: Get your bookmarks, passwords & more on all your devices.

In Google Chrome you can also create different profiles that allow you to segregate different users.

Google accounts log in

In a Google Chrome profile, you can log in with multiple Google accounts.

However, AODocs recommends that you log in to only ONE Google account per Google Chrome profile. This ensures that the data associated with your Google account is not mixed with data from other Google accounts, which often results in issues in the various Google services.

Note: If Google Sync is enabled on your Google Chrome profile, use the same Google account to log in.

Associate an account with a Google Chrome session

1. In the top-right corner of the Google Chrome window, press the character button.

2. Press Sign in to Chrome or Sign in again.

3. Enter your account email and password.

4. You can then link data or create a new profile.

  • If you press Link data, your current bookmarks and settings will be associated with the account.
  • If you press Create a new profile, you will start with a "blank" session with default settings.

Tip: If you open the same session on other devices all the settings, bookmarks and history will be retrieved.

Important:
– You can only associate a Google account with a Google Chrome session.
– Once you have associated an account with a Chrome session, don't log into other accounts from this session. Use one account per profile.
– If you need to use another account, associate this account with a new profile.
