Buy Chrome subscription licenses

To manage devices that run Chrome OS, you need to subscribe to a Chrome service, such as Chrome Enterprise or Chrome Education. You then buy a subscription licenses for each device you want to manage. 

See Subscription options | Purchase licenses

Enroll Chrome devices

After you buy licenses for your Chrome devices, enroll the devices in your Admin console. After a device is enrolled, you can start enforcing policies to manage its use.  

See Enroll Chrome 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 make Wi-Fi and proxy settings, preinstall apps and extensions, limit access to authorized users, and much more. Make settings for different groups of users, such as teachers versus students, or full-time employees versus temps. 

See Manage policies for Chrome devices.

Deploy kiosk and public session devices

You can dedicate Chrome devices as purpose-built kiosk apps. These can be used for student testing or a point-of-sale kiosk in a store. You can also manage public-session devices, which people can share without using an account. These are useful in a library, cyber cafe, or business center.
