What are Profiles
Profiles allow you to scope Logins, Cookies, Browsing History, and other settings to one or multiple Spaces.
A common use for Profiles is separating Work data from Personal data.
What’s included in a Profile?
Authentication (logins, passwords, autofill)
Cache / Cookies
Default Browser Selection
Settings in arc://settings (such as Language or Download Preferences)
How to add a Profile to a Space:
Hover over your Space Title and click "Edit" then hover over "Profile"
Select an existing Profile or Create a new one
New profiles are empty containers without authentication or history. As you start logging in and navigating, the Profile will retain that data.
To remove a Profile from your Space, hover over your Space Title and click "Edit" and select Profile > Default.
For now, Profiles do not sync across devices (but we hope to build this soon!). Your Spaces and Tabs will still sync across devices, even if they belong to a Profile.
How to Delete a Profile
You can remove an unused or unwanted Profile by heading to Arc > Settings > General and then clicking “Delete [Profile Name].”
Keep in mind, you won’t be able to click the “Delete” button until you’ve removed that Profile from all your Spaces.
