    The only way that worked for me is deleting google chrome then install it again

      But think, if you have it installed in 2 different laptops and in each laptop you have 2 different OS, Linux and Windows. So, basically we have to handle with 4 different timeline using Google Chrome, so maybe because of this the problem, sometimes in my case I don’t use Windows for months and when I needed to use I got that problem and right now it a common issue every time, just restart the browser and the message is there, PAUSED, sync again!

    Nothing has worked for me. I even reset my windows 10 completely and did a fresh reinstall. I deleted and reinstalled Chrome 3-4 times. I tried the 3 steps in your article after every reinstall. But, still same issue. Extremely annoying.

      Did you try login in to the Google account? How frequently do you get this Sync is Paused alert?

  6. PausingError says:

    Every time I log into a certain email address that I used for my iCloud account. Do you know if pausing is also affecting the updates of my photos? It seems my photos are updating on all other devices except my MacBook Pro which has the most storage and has this pausing error status dating back 10th of July. So I am going to try to do these steps and perhaps one of these options will work for me.

    I’m glad I found this article. I’ve been having a problem with this for about 3 months as of Sept. 19, 2021, today. I was about ready to uninstall Boogle Chrome and install a browser that didn’t make me sign in everytime I opened the browser. [When I’m the ONLY ONE that even uses my PC and it has a password so it’s not even enough of a security issue for me to even be logged out in the first place] My go to Alternatives are Opera and Mozilla Firefox. Thanks to this article Boogle doesn’t make me log in to my account to sync the data each time I open the browser. I tend to call Google Boogle because they’re always bungling something. Thank you for the very useful article.


    None of these work for me.

      Hello Matthew, sorry to hear that it didn’t work. The issue mostly lies in the browser itself rather than the system, however, your system configuration looks great and has no problem. I’d suggest rechecking the browser settings once again, especially cookies and javascript settings. Let us know how it goes.

    Go to Settings, Privacy and security, Cookies and other site data. Then turn off “Clear cookies and site data when you close all windows”. That’s the fix
