Google Chrome: how to save user data in the Portable App folder?

Hi All,
I have installed Google Chrome portable on a BitLocker drive protected by password to avoid users not authorized (i have a domain PC) to access my Google session with all saved password.
Even if the App is installed as portable, seems that all users data and customizations are saved in local AppData folder in Windows.
So if a user access to my Windows session and install a standard version of Google Chrome, it automatically has all my saved data.

It's possible to completely isolate Chrome in the portable folder?

Thanks

How Starting?

It should not matter where you start from, Chrome Portable will contain its data as long as you run GoogleChromePortable.exe directly and allow it to shut down. Note that there are currently a couple non-personal traces left behind but these will be fixed soon: https://portableapps.com/node/59966

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

There is something not

There is something not working for some reason.
This is what I did.
I had my standard Chrome installation with my Google account synchronized.
I have disconnected my Google account from the standard Chrome installation, then I have uninstalled Chrome.
After this, I have "installed" Google Chrome portable and configured it with my Google account synchronization (so I have all my passwords, bookmarks, navigaton history, etc.).

Then, just to check that all was fine, I have installed the standard Chrome again, and once opened, all my settings was still there with my Google account configured.
So I have disconnected again the Google account from the standard installer, and if I open the portable Google Chrome, the account is disconnected even there.

What's wrong?

Hello,
any update about this?
Should I consider this as a bug?
