This morning as I was starting to get caught up on a backlog of email I answered a question from a reader who wanted to know if I had a video about Chrome profiles that she could share with her staff. I do, here it is. In the video I demonstrate and explain the difference between signing into a Chrome profile and signing into your Google account. The video is embedded below.
The key points to remember are:
- Your Chrome profile handles all of your Chrome browser preferences and settings including the extensions you like to use, bookmarks, saved passwords, and display settings (default fonts and color schemes).
- Signing into your Google account is how you access things like Gmail and Google Docs.
- Whenever you’re done using a shared computer, you should sign out of both your Chrome profile and your Google account.
