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.
