Windows 10 version 2004 annoys Chrome users

[German]The upgrade to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (Version 2004) has caused annoyance to some users due to bugs. Google Chrome users may also experience trouble with Windows 10 version 2004..


Chrome users are thrown out of login

On systems that have been updated to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (2004 version), users of the Google Chrome browser may run into problems. One user describes the whole thing in this Google Forums post.

Chrome keeps signing me out after updating to Windows update 2004

I have recently just updated to windows update 2004 and I keep having issues with google signing me out of every account on my browser including forcing me to sign in again for sync. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled chrome to try fixing this. It's been starting to get really annoying having to resign into my accounts every time I use my pc. Does anyone know any way to fix this?

In the specific case, the user has updated to Windows 10 version 2004, but now finds that login to online accounts under Google Chrome is causing problems. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Chrome browser did not help. Could have been an isolated case – but other users have reported similar problems in the post. One user writes:

I have the same problem. It seems that cookies are being deleted randomly, from time to time. This is realy, realy anoying!!! :( I reported this to Google at least twice and nothing seems to have been done so far. I don't know if this is a Google or Microsoft issue, and frankly I don't care! Just talk with each other and fix it!!!

It seems to him that the cookies in which the login tokens are stored are sporadically deleted. Windows Latest has summarized the whole thing here. It says that the credentials are probably lost when Windows 10 is restarted. 

Google security researcher Tavis Ormandy believes that the error may have something to do with the master key cache, and you can try these steps to fix the problem:

  • Close Chrome.exe
  • Press Win + L, to lock the system
  • Unlock your device and launch Chrome again

Somebody affected? Addendum: Techdows reports here, that Google is investigating the issue.
