Note: If the Chrome browser is connected and synced with your Google account across different devices, any changes made to bookmarks in one device will reflect on the other synced devices. If you edit or delete bookmarks in Chrome on your iPhone, Chrome on your computer will also edit or delete the same bookmarks when synced.

Bottom Line

The bookmarking feature helps add the frequently visited site to the browser record, which can later be opened from the Bookmarks menu.

The Chrome app on iPhone or iPad has a bookmarking feature that allows one to access, edit, and delete the saved bookmarks. The bookmarks are synced across the connected device when signed in with the same Google account.

A similar feature to add and manage bookmarks in Chrome browser is available for the computer. If you need to import the bookmarks, you must first import the bookmark file in Chrome on a computer and later sync them to Chrome on your iPhone or iPad.

    1. Hi Robin, due to the limited screen size in the iPhone device, most of the phone browsers do not have a feature to show a bookmark bar. Hence, you may only be able to make it visible all the time.
