How to choose what information to sync

Google Chrome saves and syncs everything in your browser when you’re signed into your Google account. This is a useful feature that is available, for example, when you log into your school or work computer and want to have access to all your bookmarks, saved passwords, extensions, and settings available on your personal computer.

If you’re the type of person who doesn’t use the full sync process in Chrome, you might want to limit some of the data saved to your account.

Once you’ve signed into Chrome using your Google account, it’s time to choose what information gets saved and synced to your browser.

Launch Chrome, click your profile picture, and then click Sync With. You can also enter chrome://settings/people to the omnibox and press Enter.

Click on your profile picture, then click

Under the People heading, click Sync & Google Services.

Click Sync and Google Services.

Then click Manage Sync.

On the next screen, everything that is saved to your account and synced across all your devices is listed below. By default, «Sync Everything» is enabled. To manually switch information to sync with Chrome, you first need to turn off «Sync All» and then turn off any other options by toggling the switch between them.

To manually change the information you sync, first click Sync All, then select the options you don't want to keep

To use the same settings on every device you sign in on, leave Sync All enabled.

Any changes you make are automatically saved and you can close the tab when you’re done.

That’s all there is to it. After making changes, any disabled information is no longer stored in your Google account and on other devices.
