I find it convenient, but it’s not hard to stop it. It’s as easy as A, B, C actually. 

A. Go into the dashboard. Log in. https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard?hl=en

B. Scroll down to “Chrome Sync” and click “Manage Chrome Sync” on the right.

C. Go to bottom of resulting summary page and click “Stop and Clear.” It will ask you if you really want to, and if you do, in fact, really want to, click “Ok.”
