Signing in to Chrome by Bhartisingh9759


									Signing in to Chrome
One of Chrome's most powerful features is the ability to Sign in to
Chrome. Signing in allows you to access your bookmarks, saved passwords,
history and settings from any computer and even some mobile devices.

You will need a Google Account to sign in to Chrome. In addition to
saving your Google Chrome settings, there are lots of great reasons to
sign up for a Google account, such as Google Docs, Gmail, and Google
Calendar. Check out our tutorial on Google Accounts for more information,
including How to Create a Google Account.

If you have a Gmail address, you already have a Google Account, so you
won't need to create an account—you can simply sign in to Chrome using
your Gmail information.

To Sign in to Chrome:
Click the Wrench icon in the top-right corner of the browser.

Clicking the Wrench icon
Select Sign in to Chrome...from the drop-down menu.

Signing in to Chrome
The Sign in to Chrome page will appear. Enter your Google username (Gmail
address) and password and click Sign in.

Entering Google account details
You are now signed in to Chrome. Click OK to close the dialog box.

Signed in to Google Chrome
Do not sign into Chrome on a public computer. Even if you sign out of
your Google Account in the browser window, you may still be signed in to
Chrome. This could allow other people to access your personal
information, email, and saved passwords. For more information about
privacy in Chrome, check out our lesson on Chrome Security and Privacy.

Adding Other Users
If you use a family computer, you may want to add other accounts to
Chrome, which will allow everyone to access their Chrome settings quickly
and easily.

To Add Other Accounts to Chrome:
Click the Wrench icon in the top-right corner of the browser and then
select Settings from the drop-down menu.

Opening the Google Chrome Settings
The Settings tab will appear. Locate and select Add new user.

Adding a new user
The sign-in form will open in a new window. Enter the new user's Google
username (Gmail address) and password and click Sign in.

Signing in to another account
The new account will appear in the user list. Both users will be assigned
a name and user icon. You can always see which account Chrome is using by
looking at the user icon in the top-left corner of the browser.

Viewing the list of current users in Chrome
Click the Edit...button to change a user's name and icon.

Clicking the Edit... button
The Edit User dialog box will appear. Enter your name, select your icon
and click OK.

from the drop-down menu.
