How do I get rid of the yellow warning triangle next to my user in Google Chrome?

20,687

The yellow warning triangle indicates an error syncing your Google account with Chrome. Before Chrome introduced the new profile menu this was indicated by the Chrome menu button changing to orange. As exampled in a separate post https://superuser.com/a/866980/226999, the indicator was integrated into the new profile menu.

A common reason for this error is due to changing your Google password and can be fixed by clicking the warning icon and signing into Chrome again. More steps to fix this are on the Chrome help page "Troubleshooting sync issues."

    I have logged into my Google Account in Chrome, however I cannot seem to get rid of the annoying yellow warning triangle seen in the screenshots below.

    How can I get rid of that?

      If you hover over the warning icon. What does the tooltip say its a warning of exactly? There a reason you modified the other image to protect your privacy but choose to display your email for all to see?

      Firstly I would really recommend taking your Email address out of both the question and the screenshots. In regards to the triangle I had it the other day and simply clicked on the top one (right hand screenshot) and re-authenticated which fixed the issue and the triangle vanished, still not sure what the problem was though!

      @Ramhound There is no tooltip on the warning triangle unofrtunately. The blocked out image contains my name.

      @CharlesH No need to take my email out of the SS. I have tried to re-authenticate multiple times but it has no effect.

      @crmpicco do you have multiple accounts (Switch person)?

      @CharlesH I only had one account/person, but I can login with a gmail account and it works fine. Is there a problem logging in with a non-gmail account (i.e. my AOL Google account)?

      @crmpicco - You should have mentioned that. The warning likely as something to do with Google Account. If you are not logging into an actual Google Account, although, I say this and begin to wonder what your logging into if thats the case.

    Memory should have its unit of measure in place, such as KB, MB etc.

    @Ramhound it is an answer: the OP should sign-out and sign-in to get his problem fixed.

    I don't agree this answers the question. What I see is a comment at the very most.
