What are Profiles
Profiles allow you to scope Logins, Cookies, Browsing History, Archive timing, 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 the paintbrush 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 > Profiles in the Mac menu bar, clicking the Profile you want to delete, and then clicking “Delete Profile.”
Keep in mind, you won’t be able to click the “Delete” button until you’ve removed that Profile from all your Spaces.
