How to Fix Google Chrome Logout and Sync Errors on Windows 10

The Windows 10 May 2020 Update made using Chrome a lot harder for some users, myself included. For several months, people have been reporting unwanted logouts from their Google account when using Chrome on Windows 10, as well as sync issues between their mobile device and PC caused by deleted cookies.

Google and Microsoft are aware of the bugs, but there is no official fix yet. Fortunately, there are several workarounds that can help you deal with both. None of these are guaranteed to work, but I’ve been able to successfully fix Chrome issues on my desktop and other users are reporting similar positive results.

The first fix is ​​in a forum post originally reported by TechDows . It includes finding and removing tasks from Windows 10 Task Scheduler so that your computer doesn’t exit Chrome and delete cookies:

  1. Type “PowerShell” in the Windows Start menu search bar.
  2. Right-click PowerShell in the search results and select “Run as administrator”.
  3. Type or paste the following command into Powershell, then press Enter to run it. (If that doesn’t work, you have to copy and paste it directly from TechDows .): Get-ScheduledTask | foreach { If (([xml](Export-ScheduledTask -TaskName $_.TaskName -TaskPath $_.TaskPath)).GetElementsByTagName(“LogonType”).'#text' -eq "S4U") { $_.TaskName } }
  4. Pay attention to all the tasks listed in PowerShell after you run the command. (If there are no tasks listed, skip to the next set of steps below to try a different workaround instead.)
  5. Then open Task Scheduler by searching for “Task Scheduler” in the Start menu.
  6. In the Task Scheduler window, find the tasks listed in PowerShell.
  7. Click to highlight the task, then right-click and select Delete. »Repeat these steps for all the tasks that are listed after the PowerShell command.

The Task Scheduler fix worked for me and it should work for you. If it doesn’t, an older workaround might help:

  1. Enter Event Viewer in the Start menu search bar and click Event Viewer to launch the application.
  2. Go to Windows Logs> Apps and Services> Microsoft> Windows> Crypto-DPAPI> Operational
  3. If you see any errors in the list, close all Chrome browser windows.
  4. Press Windows Key + L to lock your computer.
  5. Unlock your computer, then download Chrome.

If that doesn’t work either, or you don’t see any errors in the log, the next step is to try to uninstall the May 2020 update and we’ll cover that challenge in this guide .
