I use the Chrome sync function to sign in, sync, and manage all of my personal passwords with a personal google account and then all of my work passwords through a second, separate personal Google account.

Today, I stupidly signed into sync with my personal google account at work. Chrome asked me if it was me signing in cause it remembered all the data from the other work personal account. I clicked yes, and it erased all of my saved passwords for my personal google account and replaced them with only the passwords that were saved in my work personal account.

Does anyone know how to undo this, recover my passwords, or revert my account back to yesterday or some other kind solution to my fatal error?

    You will have to use one of your other devices, while in offline, to perform a backup of the data. You should be able to at this point, then replace the data once that data has been then synched to the current profile state, and hopefully forcefully restore the data. If you have no devices that are offline, with the old data, then the data is completely and totaly lost. – Ramhound Sep 11 at 16:27
