How To Turn On/Off Sync With Your Google Account For Chrome?

Google Chrome allows you to sync your Google account to the Chrome browser. When you enable the synchronization feature, all your searches, relevant websites and frequently visited URLs and links are synchronized across all your devices. This is an important feature. For example, if you use a banking website quite frequently, then Google personalizes your search options and whenever you type the first letter of the website, Chrome displays the website name in the suggestions. In this way, you can save your time. If you synchronize these searches with your Google Account, then you can get the same benefits in any account which has your Google account logged in.

However, Google gives you the freedom to turn on or off the sync option. If your PC is used by any other person, with whom you do not want to share your personalized search results, then you can turn off the sync option for some time till the user is using your PC. After that, you can turn it on. In this article, we shall show you how to turn on/ off sync with your Google Account on Google Chrome.
