Profile Sync allows you to keep Wavebox in sync on multiple computers.  It's simple - you save a profile in the cloud and connect other computers to it so they all stay in sync.  

👍 Tip: When you first install Wavebox Profile Sync is automatically enabled for the Primary Profile.

✅ What items are included in a Profile Sync?

  • Sync all your containers, groups, and apps so your favorite web app workflows can be accessed from any computer.
  • Sync your tabs and windows, so you can carry on where you left off, wherever you are.
  • Your workflows probably include pinned tabs and saved items (from the tooltip menus), and you can include those too.
  • Any Chrome extensions you've added, such as Grammarly, Boomerang, and LastPass.
