Sync your Bookmarks, Accounts, Apps, Themes in Chrome Browser

Google Chrome Browser

Many of us may know about the browser toolbars such as Google toolbar, Yahoo toolbar and add-ons which enable us to sign in and sync our bookmarks across multiple computers. But, Google chrome has an in-built feature to sync all your bookmarks, customizations etc., 

Why I need to use this?

  • To keep a safe copy of online backup of all of your Bookmarks, Apps, Themes stored in your Browser
  • To use your browser settings, bookmarks anywhere

Think a while,  One day, if your computer crashed, operating system not accessible, then you have to reformat the system. In such time, you will get lose of all your information including the account information, bookmarks stored in your browser.

if you have registered in multiple websites and you have stored your account information, username, passwords in your browser, to login automatically, all of your information will get destroyed.

If you stored in Google chrome and enabled the sync, your information stored in Google servers in safe encrypted format.

After reinstalling your operating system, install the Google Chrome browser and sign in to your account in chrome browser. It'll restore all the Bookmarks, Account information, your installed Apps, Extensions, Themes, Preferences and everything.

If you are using Internet, multiple computers such as Laptop and Desktop, this will be very useful to keep sync of all of your data.

It's the great feature of chrome browser.

Also, you have the option to delete your information at Google Dashboard at any time.
