    You need to make sure you're signed in to a google account on your chrome desktop version and they should be automatically in your bookmarks on the phones stock browser, or chrome for android. Assuming you're signed into the same google account on your phone and sync options are enabled. (Accounts and Sync within settings)

    In my phone Settings, I've checked ever to Sync Now, and looks like syncing. But when I try to sybc Chrome, phone notification says "sync: android system sync disabled. Enable and try again." i can't see where else to do that.

    On Chrome for Android
    1. Open Chrome
    2. Open Menu > Settings > Sign in to Chrome or touch the account name that shows.
    3. Touch “Sync” to turn on and make sure the “Chrome to Mobile” checkbox is selected.

      If you're still not having success, under Sync, you can see the options it is syncing (Sync Everything, Bookmarks, Omnibox history, Open tabs)

    I've done that and had to turn Sync "on" on that page. I checked "sync everything", "sync bookmarks", etc. "reset sync" shows at the bottom. When I touch that, it bring me to the Google sign-in page and shows the the "dashboard". Here everything says "requesting data for ...." chrome sync, or gmail, or calendar. This goes on for quite a while with nothing happening.In the meantime, there is another notification "chrome Sync" android system sync disabled. please enable and try again. " Then shows me another "sync" screen with option to "auto-sync app data (emails, twitter and VZ backup). I don't want to sync those. Then, back in to Google Chrome, and everything that had been checked, is unchecked.

    Try going into Settings > Apps >Chrome and clearing data and then trying again to see if that resolves the issue.

    I've done all of that. I then go into Chrome and look under "settings" and the sync is unchecked again. And I get a notification that "android system sync is disabled." I'm just going to uninstall Chrome and maybe try again. Frustrating. But thank you for all the help
