Turn Keep on or off for users

As a G Suite administrator, you can control who uses Google Keep in your organization. Users who have Keep turned on can use it to create, manage, and share notes within your organization.

By default, Keep is enabled for all new organizations, and for organizations that use Drive.  You can also choose to have new services initially turned on or off

Note: To enable Keep, you must have Google Drive turned on for your users, or an error occurs.

To enable or disable Keep:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in

  2. Go to Apps > G Suite > Keep
  3. If you have the G Suite Enterprise or Business or Education or Nonprofits edition, select the desired organizational unit. (Learn about G Suite editions.)

    Otherwise, your settings apply to your entire organization.

  4. In the top-right corner, click Menu More and select ON for everyone, ON for some organizations, or OFF.
  5. (Optional) Adjust the Drive Settings options that are supported by Keep.

Alternatively, you can access these settings directly from the Additional Google services page and then Keep and then Menu More and select ON for everyone, ON for some organizations, or OFF.
