[Security,Sync & Multi-login, Update for Chromebook]

1. Chromebook Security

Chromebook provides multiple layers of protection using the principle of "defense in depth." Even if one of the layers of protection is disabled, the other layers remain in effect, so take precautions to protect your data, you can use the Internet a little more peace of mind.
The following security features are built into your Chromebook:
Auto update
The most effective protection against malware is to keep all software up-to-date and to apply the latest security fixes. Existing operating systems provide different software components from different vendors, and update mechanisms and user interfaces are different, which can be difficult to manage. Chromebook automatically manages updates, so they always run the latest and most secure version.
On a Chromebook, all web pages and applications run in a restricted environment called a "sandbox." So when you visit an infected webpage on your Chromebook, it will not affect anything else on your computer, including other tabs or apps. The threat is being blocked.
Self-Test Booting
Your Chromebook will continue to be protected even if malware penetrates the sandbox environment. Every time you start your Chromebook, it will perform a self-check called "self-test boot." If it detects that a system has been misconfigured or damaged in any way, it usually self-heals itself without any extra effort and reverts the Chromebook to a new operating system.
Data Encryption
When you use the web app on your Chromebook, all your important data is stored securely in the cloud. Files such as download, cookies, and browser cache files may remain on some computers. Accessing these files is very difficult on Chromebooks that encrypt data using tamper-resistant hardware.
Recovery mode
If you experience a problem with your Chromebook, you can simply press a button or use keyboard shortcuts to enter recovery mode and restore your operating system to a safe version without errors.

Sometimes a link or email leads to a fake site that locks the browser. These sites are called "robbery sites" or "rogue sites," and make you think that users should pay to continue using their computers. This is not true. After a few simple steps, you can unlock your Chrome browser and use your Chromebook again as usual.
Unlock Chrome browser
  1. Select your Chromebook from this list and follow the instructions to reset your Chromebook. If your Chromebook is not listed, press Refresh + Power on your keyboard.
  2. When you sign in to your Chromebook and open the Chrome browser, the Restore window opens.
  3. Click the X in the top right corner to close the window.
  4. Note: Do not click Restore. Clicking Restore will reopen the malicious webpage and lock your browser.
  5. Open a few websites and make sure your browser is working properly.
If your browser is still locked, learn more about restoring your Chromebook.

2. Chromebook Sync & Multi-login

If you use Chrome on your computer, smartphone, or Chromebook, you can sync bookmarks, history, passwords, and other settings you've saved from one device. Devices that use Chrome should use a way to sign in to Chrome to sync with each other.

Automatically sync your bookmarks, Chrome apps, and Chrome extension apps  

One of the key benefits of a Chromebook is that you can use your Chrome browser's settings and history (bookmarks, history, passwords, installed Chrome extension apps, and other settings) using on other computers. Your Chrome browser experience on a Windows PC or Apple Mac is automatically synced when you sign in to your Chromebook.

You need a Google Account to do this. If you're using a Chrome browser or a Chromebook on different devices, you can sync information from your Chrome browser via Chrome Sign-In.

Even if you lose your device, or switch to a new computer or a new smartphone, you can still get past all of your previous history and experiences with your Google Account using your Chrome browser.

There are things to note when signing in to Chrome. Never sign in to the Chrome browser on a public PC or anyone else's computer. You need to sign in from a trusted Chromebook or computer.

Signing in with your Chromebook is like signing in to the Chrome browser on another computer. Logging in to your Chromebook automatically syncs all your experiences from the Chrome browser you used on other computers.

For instructions on setting up Chrome Sign-In on another computer or smartphone (Android, iOS), please refer to the 'Sign in to Chrome' Help.

How to login with multiple accounts

You may have multiple Google Accounts added to one Chromebook. Or, individuals may have multiple Google Accounts. If you want to go to each account during use, you can go to another account without logging out.
