Turn sync on and off in Chrome

To save your info to your Google Account, turn on sync.

When you sync

  • You can see and update your synced info on all your devices, such as bookmarks, history, passwords and other settings.
  • You'll sign in automatically to Gmail, YouTube, Search and other Google services. If you were signed in before turning on sync, you'll stay signed in.
  • If you change devices (for example, if you lose your phone or get a new laptop), you'll get your synced info back.
  • You’ll personalise your experience in other Google products by including your Chrome history if you turn on Web & app activity.

Note: Only turn on Chrome Sync with devices that you own. If you're using a public computer, use guest mode instead.
