Configuring Google Sync

Google Chrome Sync has been enabled!

Having multiple computers can be great when one of them is a laptop for mobile computing and another stays at home for the family. Fortunately, Google Chrome lets you sync your bookmarks and extensions so you don't have to add or transfer them to your other computers. So how can you turn on this feature? Follow these three quick steps for enabling sync on Google Chrome.

Step 1: Open the menu in your Chrome browser (the three lines in the upper right-hand corner) and choose Settings.

Step 2: In the new tab that opens, click the Sign in to Chrome button near the top and sign-in to your account.

Step 3: You can choose which settings you want to sync or "Sync everything." Additionally, you will need to add a passphrase for encryption.

Step 4 (Optional): Enable syncing in Google Chrome on your other devices, such as computers, phones, or tablets. The features you chose to sync should appear shortly.

Now you don't need to transfer your bookmarks, re-download your extensions, or struggle to remember your passwords -- Chrome brings them along for you.
