There are a lot of people who have multiple profiles created for using the Chrome browser on the device, depending on personal or professional usage, or multiple users sharing a single device.
Each Chrome profile contains bookmarks, history, passwords and other content. The same profiles can also be used by the user across all your computers and mobile devices.
