Sign in or out of Chrome

When you sign in to Chrome, your info is saved to your Google Account so that you can get it whenever you need it.

What happens when you're signed in

  • You can see and update your synced info on all your devices, like bookmarks, history, passwords and other settings.
  • If you change devices (like if you lost your phone or got a new laptop), you'll get all your info back.
  • You'll sign in automatically to Gmail, YouTube, Search and other Google services.
