    Google Region settings in Chrome keep reverting back to Current Region


    For years I have used the same search settings in Google. 1: Display 30 results per page and 2: region should be the USA (even though I now live in Israel.)

    I use Google Chrome and have the latest version. Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    For the past few days, after a few visits to my home page (google.com) The settings revert back to ISRAEL as the region. I keep putting it back to the USA but after a few minutes of browsing, it keeps going back to Israel.

    On other browsers (FF, Opera, etc) this does not happen.
    Meaning, when I go to search settings\region, in Chrome it will be set to my current region and in other browsers, it will be set to the USA.

    This itself is confusing because I would think that the changes made to the Google account settings should be global and not browser cookie-based.

    These are the things I have already tried and did not work:

    1. Logging out of all other locations and logging back in.
    2. Using this url: Google
    3. Clearing all history, cookies, etc.
    4. Allowing Google cookies.
    5. Location is disabled in my Google account settings.
    6. No one else is using my Google account.
    7. No other apps are changing this setting.


    I spent hours searching this issue on Google forums, but no one gave any more suggestions as to what’s causing this and why it only started happening a few days ago.

    What else could be causing this and what can I do?

    Note: After changing the region to the USA, it will stay like that even after clearing the cache and refreshing the page a few times. But if I visit Google.com after about 10 minutes, that's when it reverts back to the current region.

    So it seems that any region cookie that's being saved is on a timer or something.

    It solved itself a while back, can't remember when. Might have been a bug that got sorted out with newer versions of Chrome or maybe some extension that I uninstalled.
