Chrome Sync Personalities/Can't add new profile
0
I have multiple accounts on Google that I can toggle between but I only have one profile. And I want to add more profiles so I can sync all my google/chrome accounts through adding a new profile and I've looked up videos/posts to see how it's do it. But I am stuck at the first step. I don't have a "people" tab in the settings or profiles. And I don't have an "add" button when I click on the avatar or anything. I've looked in the actual settings page, included advanced options, and I don't see it. 

Is there something wrong? Or am I missing anything? 

Edit: I am not talking about switching between accounts. That I can do. I am talking about adding a new profile. I do not have that option. 

Thank you all ahead of time for helping!

Hi @Kelly L. 2218 Go to a new tab, and go to the right corner. Click on your profile picture, click on Manage Accounts. Add a second account, a new chrome tab will open. You can log in here with another account or you can make a new!

That is what I'm saying, I do not have that option. When I click on my profile picture, I do not have the option to "add new profile". If by manage accounts, you mean "manage your google account" then I have that but when I click on it, it takes me to the home page of Google Accounts and I have no option here. 

If you mean by adding a new account on the same profile, that I can do. But, I need help adding a new profile, not a new account. Because I want to separate my work, personal, and other emails, bookmarks, reading list, etc. 

So see the picture below. Usually people have a "Add +" & "Guest" button below other profiles but I do not have anything. It is the same thing in the settings. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Google Chrome. I have checked policies and flags and system settings. 

There is is simply no option for me to add another profile.

Boosting so this doesn't get locked. I still haven't found a solution or even know what the problem/bug is.

I'm having the same issue! NO Add button whatsoever. 
I have a guest profile but I want to create a separate profile for my personal vs work. 

Boosting this in the hopes anyone can answer

I'm also having this same issue. I restored my settings, updated chrome and it still won't let me add a new chrome profile.

Had same issue, but I seem to have figured it out! 

1. Logged out of all my google accounts
2. Selected one to login to and when prompted with popup giving me two choices (I'm paraphrasing):

a) This wasn't me - make new profile
b) This was me

--> key choice (which I hadn't tried before): CHOOSE "This wasn't me" - That is what then creates/adds the separate profile.

I repeated those steps for my multiple google accounts, creating a separate chrome profile for each one successfully. And now all three profiles display as choices I can switch to when I click on the top-right chrome profile avatar.

YAY!!!
