Would be a very useful feature instead of accessing bookmarks but you could create a bookmarks folder and add you important sites there - should be two clicks away at most. Here ...

If you cannot sync for some reason then your option of import to export from your Android device the bookmarks is pretty much closed, if the device is not rooted. Did I hear ADB backup? No, not in this case because Chrome for Android doesn't allow backup by ADB. Any hope? Yes, but only for rooted devices. I didn't really understand from what you are ...

Note: This method requires root access. The credentials of the websites that you allowed Chrome to save are stored in the file Login data which is located inside the data directory of Chrome i.e. /data/data/com.android.chrome/app_chrome/Default/. Certainly, no app or even ADB can access that location and neither Chrome has any provision through GUI to ...

This answer by Satyam Koyani tells us that the file that keep those flags is named Local State, though the answer isn't Android specific. It turned out to be true. The location of the file is /data/data/com.android.chrome/app_chrome/Local State. It's a JSON file but the extension is missing so your text editor may run into issues with formatting when you ...

I would use firefox. It has an option to clear on exit. You do have to go to the menu (which you can access by tapping the menu icon) and hit quit every time, but seeming as there is no way I know of in chrome, It's better than nothing. Firefox does take some getting used to though, so switch with caution.

Both type of apps doesn't exist as of now. So the short answer i.e. without root access, would be NO, you can't automatically clear browsing data on exit in Chrome for ...

Nobody has answered you, and your question has a low quality score (as of this writing, it has only one point). Why? I suspect it's because your question wasn't so well-written. Although Android uses a Linux kernel, Android is not Linux. And so http://www.chromium.org/administrators/linux-quick-start provides information which will probably be useless for ...

The XML file alone will not help you. Chrome doesn't read the contents of that file directly. Instead, it accesses it via Android's UserManager.getApplicationRestrictions. In order for this to work, you actually need to set up a "work profile" on your device. In order to do that, you actually need to run the BasicManagedProfile app you have mentioned; this ...

If you have rooted your phone, you can build and push a system ChromeCustomizations app, which installs a content provider that allows among other things to disable Incognito mode in Chrome. This utilizes the officially supported way that phone manufacturers use in order to control the starting page and default bookmarks of Chrome on their phones.
