Everything is syncing except for password

"rm ~/.config/chromium/Default/Login\ Data*" is destructive action without any challenge to the user. The user who executes this command will lose all of his defined passwords Mozlima (talk) 19:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Certainly. But I would argue that the usage of rm always causes data loss. So this is something obvious in my opinion, also the user is usually expected to have backups. This is not the reason why I undid your edit. The reason for that is described in the comment, it needed mostly language improvements.

Use of official Chrome API keys in Chromium

If this thread is any indication of Arch's strategy going forward, we might be wary of linking readers of this wiki to guides for using the official Chrome API keys with the chromium package.

On the other hand, it's not clear to me if Google will continue after March 15th to allow use of their APIs with individually issued API keys, as long as they are not shared? https://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/api-keys

"Add another account" on Google sites doesn't stick

I noticed this at some point since chromium stopped supporting the Sync API without your own OAuth credentials (see that separate discussion for more details). When using a google service such as mail.google.com or drive.google.com, normally we can select the profile icon and "Add another account" to have multiple logins active (note this is website login, NOT chromium login). On windows (and formerly in chromium on linux) these added accounts remain logged in, but now in chromium on linux it seems every 24 hours or so any additional accounts are logged out, making it quite a hassle to manage documents and email across multiple accounts, even with the same persistent browser session over several days (need to log in to additional accounts again about every day). Again, this is not the case on windows, additional accounts remain logged in.

Anyone know more about this, or have a way to work around it?
