About Chrome OS device management

For administrators who manage Chrome OS devices for a business or school.

As an IT admin for a business or school, you can manage Chromebooks and other Chrome devices, from a cloud-based Admin console. Enforce policies, set up  Chrome features for users, provide access to your internal VPNs and Wi-Fi networks, force install Chrome 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 Chrome OS device bundled with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade, you can't access Chrome features that are exclusive to enterprise accounts.

Get Chrome Enterprise devices

Each Chrome Enterprise device comes with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade so you don’t need to purchase upgrades separately. Devices include Chromebook Enterprise, Chromebox Enterprise, and Chromebase Enterprise. 

See Chrome Enterprise devices.

Buy Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade

To manage standalone devices that run Chrome OS in your business or educational environment, you need Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade. You need to buy it for every Chrome device you want to manage.

See Subscription options | Purchase upgrades.

Enroll Chrome devices

After you buy Chromebook Enterprise devices or Chrome Enterprise Upgrades for your standalone Chrome devices, enroll them in the Google 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 managed guest 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 control managed guest session devices, which people can share without using an account. These are useful in a library, cyber cafe, or business center.
