I don't know how many people out there have this kind of problem.
But, mine just solved few minutes ago.
It's begin when I am installing Chrome in new profile.
After using Chrome too long for more than 2 years, you can imagine how many bookmarks, setting and more are there in Chrome.
Luckily, Chrome come with a Sync function where I can store all the setting there, and whenever I move to new computer I will get my old settings.
It happen I have been using few computers this few years, and this function save my time a lot.
Until last two months, when my main windows profile get messed up, I decided to create a new profile. With new profile, I have to set everything from scracth. I thought I will save my time when dealing with Chrome, but then whenever I tried to Sync my setting to Chrome, suddenly it asked for Passphrase.
I never set any Passphrase, I thought. "Owh, perhaps, Chrome is upgrading their systems right now". Few months had gone, and never had my chrome sync yet.
Until today, I decide to try my luck, getting back to use Chrome, I tried to enter any passphrase, just I case I actually set it up before.
My last try, I insert my previous password before I changed to new Google password.
So, the solution is easy.
My theory is, Chrome will ask for passphrase, for those account who had changed the password.
Which, the passphrase is actually the old password.
This works for me, not sure others. If you find it working, please let me know
