For computers enrolled in Windows device management.

As an administrator, you can remotely sign a user out of their account on a Microsoft Windows 10 device enrolled in Windows device management. Signing out a user can protect your organization’s data when a Windows device is lost or stolen, or if the user forgot to sign out of their Google Account.

How user sign-out works

  • When you remotely sign a user out from their device, they're signed out of their Google Account in the web browser, not from the Windows device itself.
  • After you sign a user out of their Google Account, the next time they sign in to the device, they must enter their Google credentials in the Google sign-in screen for additional security. Learn more about signing in after a security event.

Note: To automatically lock a users’ Windows device after a specific period of inactivity, add a custom setting for DeviceLock.
