    Hello, can I get feedback on my chrome browser? I don't remember confirming an update but suddenly there is a "sign into chrome" next to the minimize box. Is it normal or do I have malware? Thank you.

    Thank you Phantom010. Yes, I'm referring to that except I'm inquiring specifically about the icon. I didn't have it there before. I do know I can sign in as described in your link but the icon is new to me.

    I've never seen that icon before, but I've never used Chrome either. Might have installed with an update?

    Perhaps some kind Google Chrome user wouldn't mind checking this for us?

    Yup, that's legit and part of a new update, Chrome updates automatically.

    The button makes it easier to sign into Chrome and adds the option to switch between Chrome profiles("Person") so that each person can have their own browser settings & data.

    Thank you everyone! I'm relieved it's part of Chrome update.
