About Chrome OS device management

For administrators who manage ChromeOS devices for a business or school.

As an IT admin for a business or school, you can manage Chromebooks and other Chrome OS devices, from your Google Admin console. Enforce policies, set up Chrome features for users, provide access to your internal VPNs and Wi-Fi networks, force install apps and extensions, and more.

Note: Your account type determines what Chrome features are available to you. For example, if your organization has an education account and you enroll a ChromeOS device bundled with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade, you can't access Chrome features that are exclusive to enterprise accounts.

Get Chrome OS devices with a bundled upgrade

Each bundled device comes with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade. So you don’t need to purchase upgrades separately. 

See About Chrome OS devices with bundled upgrades.

Buy Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade

To manage standalone Chrome OS devices in your organization, you need Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade. You need to buy an upgrade for each Chrome OS device you want to manage.

See Chrome service options | Purchase upgrades for Chrome OS devices.

Enroll Chrome OS devices

After you buy bundled devices or upgrades for your standalone Chrome OS devices, enroll them in the Admin console. After devices are enrolled, you can start enforcing policies to manage their use. 

See Enroll Chrome OS devices.

Enforce policies and manage apps

From the Admin console, you can enforce 100+ policies and settings that apply when people use your managed devices. You can configure Wi-Fi and proxy settings, automatically install apps and extensions, limit access to authorized users only, and much more. Configure settings for different groups of users, such as teachers versus students, or full-time employees versus temps. 

See Manage policies for Chrome OS devices.

Deploy kiosks and managed guest sessions

You can dedicate Chrome OS devices as purpose-built kiosk apps. These can be used for student testing or for a point-of-sale kiosk in a store.

You can control managed guest sessions, which people can share without using an account. These are useful in a library, cyber cafe, or business center.
