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.
