From Google Chrome blog:
Keep in mind that adding new users to Chrome isn’t intended to secure your data against other people using your computer, since it just takes a few clicks to switch between users. We’re providing this functionality as a quick and simple user interface convenience for people who are already sharing Chrome on the same computer today. To truly protect your data from being seen by others, please use the built-in user accounts on your operating system of choice.
The one new feature in the upgrade that Google called out was multi-user synchronization of bookmarks, passwords and apps. You can learn more about signing in to Chrome at google.com/chrome/signingin.
