Easy fix of the annoying Chrome “Your profile cannot be used …” popup


I’m using a Mac. A weeks back, my Chrome started to popup three error popups every time I opened Chrome. It’s getting really annoying. The first popup you’d see is this:

Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer version of Google Chrome.

Some features may be unavailable. Please specify a different profile directory or use a newer version of Chrome.

It turns out that there is an easy fix which helped me.

  1. Go to: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default
  2. Delete this file: Web Data
  3. Restart Chrome
  4. You need to log in again
  5. Restart Chrome one more time, and it’s fixed.
