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: Sync Chrome data across devices.

In Google Chrome you can also create different profiles that allows you to segregate the 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 other Google accounts data, often resulting in issues in the different Google Services.

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

Important:
- You can only associate a Google account with a Google Chrome session.
- Once you associated an account to 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 to a new profile.
