Highlights

  • Users can now customise Chrome profiles to their liking.

Google is remapping user profiles on Chrome's desktop version. This will allow users to create personalised profiles and customise them to their liking. It is quite similar to user profiles on Windows, where different users can control and manage their profiles individually. In addition to that, these profiles will have their own themes, passwords and more.

Google Chrome is the go-to browser for many users around the world, and every other user has a lot of personal data synced to their account on it. This feature will come in handy for all those users who use a single PC and do not want their private data to mistreated. Now with this latest update, users can easily switch between profiles. Also, they can add themes, bookmark websites, save passwords and put articles to read later list without worrying about any other user that uses the same PC.

User Profiles on Chrome

Creating a new profile is also less complicated now. Once a profile is created, users can switch between different profile on Chrome whenever required. Apart from this, profiles can be given different colours in order them easily identifiable.

Moreover, these Chrome profiles can also be accessed from other devices. All you need to do is turn on sync and your choice of theme, your bookmarks, saved passwords, and more will be accessible to you on your current device.

The update has already started rolling out and will reach desktop users in the coming weeks.
