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.

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 recommendation 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.
