SYNCING CHROME WITH GMAIL

by Abhinab Choudhury on May 19, 2011

Before we start how to sync, we should know what sync really is and what are its uses and advantages. After Google introduced Chrome into the market, they have been constantly trying to bind up almost all its features so that an interoperable hassle free user experience is achieved. Let us see how it can be done.

Go to settings button in the far right of the Chrome panel and select “Options”.

On the left side of the Chrome view you will find a tab as “Personal stuff”. Select it and browse through “set up sync” option.

Now you will be asked to enter your Gmail username and password. Just enter your information and press “Sign In”.

Now you will be asked on how and what to save the files and Chrome settings. Select all the necessary options you want to utilize.

Again, the Chrome provides you with two types of authentications, normal Gmail authentication and passphrase authentication method, in case you want to be more secured in using cross application settings. Press Enter and then you are done synchronizing your Chrome browser to your Google account.

Now whenever you will update your themes and other bookmarks and other stuffs to your Chrome browser your settings will be automatically synced to your Gmail account. Now if you want to transfer all your settings to your office PC or another laptop temporarily or permanently you can achieve it easily via this function.

P.S: Just note that you should not use this in public systems or cyber café and if you have done this, just remember to use “Remove Synched Data”, to flush out all your personal data before you leave that system.
