How to add a new profile on Google Chrome

You can create multiple profiles on Google Chrome to keep things separate, and here's how to do it.

If you use Google Chrome as your main browser, you probably didn’t know it, but you can create multiple profiles. You may want to do this to share your device with other people without the need to create a new Windows 10 account.

Also, the ability to use multiple profiles can come in handy if you have more than one account, and you want to keep your things (such as work and personal) separate.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to create new profiles on Google Chrome on your Windows 10 device.

  1. Open Google Chrome.

  7. Click the Add button.Set up new profile on ChromeSet up a new profile on Chrome

Once you complete the steps, the new profile will open as an entirely different process, which can include its own settings, bookmarks, history, passwords, and cookies.
