How to sign into your Google account with Chrome for iOS

If you don't particularly care for the native Safari app when it comes to web browsing on your iPhone or iPad, you may want to give Chrome a try. if you use Chrome on your desktop, you can even sign into your Google account in order to sync your bookmarks and other browsing data between devices.

Here's how to sign in:

  1. Launch the Chrome app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the menu icon in the top navigation. It is located directly to the right of the address bar.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom and tap on Settings.
  4. The very first option you see is Sign in to Chrome. Tap on it.
  5. If you've ever had your account linked to Chrome for iOS on that device before, you should see it and be able to tap on it. If not, tap on Add account.
  6. Now just enter your Google account credentials and sign in.

That's all there is to it. Any instance of Chrome you have running on any iOS device and any computer you're signed into should stay in sync including bookmarks and tabs.

  • Ally.... May I ask which one you prefer using between Safari & Chrome? Any particular reason for your choice?
  • I typically use Safari just for simplicity, and because that's what everything launches you into. I do use Chrome on occasion though and think it's a great browser too.
  • We are one in the same regarding using Safari for its simplicity. Recently though I started using Any.Do on my iPhone and was disappointed that it's desktop sync feature was only compatible thru Chrome.
  • They are both great browsers and with the updates that iOS is bringing im sure many will choose safari over chrome but one of the reasons I use chrome on my device is because I can open a page that I had open in my laptop browser that I need which has saved me a lot of stress several times surprisingly. Of course this is if you have an account and are signed into it on chrome, if not then I would keep using it till the new OS update and check out the new safari app to decide.
