Once you log into your Google account in Chrome, it automatically syncs your browsing history, passwords, bookmarks, etc., so that all your browsing data is here and you don’t have to start afresh. While useful, under certain circumstances, you might want to sync Chrome with your Google account. In those cases, you can simply turn off Chrome sync with just a couple of clicks.
For example, if you use a separate Chrome profile signed into your work Google account, you might not want Chrome to sync your browsing data for obvious reasons.
So, if you ever want to disable Chrome Sync with your Google account, follow the below-provided steps.
