Adding Multiple Users in Chrome for Windows

This tutorial is for an outdated version of Google Chrome. Please refer to the updated version (05/31/12)

If you aren’t the only one who uses your computer then keeping your individual settings, such as bookmarks and themes, intact can be next to impossible. This is also the case if you are looking for privacy with your bookmarked sites and other sensitive data. Google Chrome provides the ability to set up multiple users, each one having their own virtual copy of the browser on the same machine. You can even take things a step further by tying your Chrome account to your Google account, syncing bookmarks and apps across multiple devices.

This in-depth tutorial details how to create multiple accounts within Chrome, as well as how to integrate those accounts with their respective users’ Google accounts if they so choose.

First, open your Chrome browser.
