Storing data in the browser

User data in the browser (bookmarks, passwords, and browsing history) are securely protected. In the browser, personal data is protected using syncing, password managers, and access control with individual user profiles.

  1. Syncing
  2. Personal profile
  3. Password managers


Syncing refers to the exchange of data between browsers on your devices. Data is transmitted to a server over a secure channel for intermediate storage. Passwords are sent in encrypted form. The information on the server is protected using an authorization system. Syncing provides access to data from all your devices and data recovery if a device gets broken or you reinstall the operating system.
