The Difference Between a Chrome Profile and a Google Account

This morning, as I started to be caught up with an email backlog, I answered a question from a reader who wanted to know if I had a video on Chrome Profiles that she could share with her. staff. I do, it’s here. In the video, I show and explain the difference between logging into a Chrome profile and logging into your Google account. The video is embedded below.

The key points to remember are:

  • Your Chrome profile manages all of your Chrome browser preferences and settings, including extensions you like to use, bookmarks, saved passwords, and display settings (default fonts and colors).
  • Signing in to your Google Account gives you access to things like Gmail and Google Docs.
  • Whenever you’re done using a shared computer, you’ll need to sign out of your Chrome profile and Google account.
On a related note, I find it helpful to use a different profile icon for each of my Google accounts. It provides a visual reminder of the account I am currently using. It helps me avoid creating a working document in a personal account or trying to send a personal email from a work account. Here is a little video about it.
