Start managing Chrome Browser

This page is for administrators who manage Chrome Browsers on Windows®, Mac®, or Linux® computers.

As an IT admin for a business or school, you can deploy Chrome Browsers to users across Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. You can then manage 200+ policies that govern people's use of Chrome, such as the apps and extensions they can use, data security and privacy, their browsing experience, and more.

Enforce policies on-premise 

After Chrome Browser is installed on your users’ computers, use your preferred on-premise tools to enforce policies that control their use of Chrome. Policies can apply whether or not people are using Chrome Browser or signed in to any account. You can enforce policies that users cannot modify. Or set default preferences that users can change.

Manage policies from the cloud

If you have access to the Google Admin console, such as with a G Suite account, you can manage user-level policies from the cloud. These policies apply when users are signed in to their corporate Chrome profile on any Chrome Browser or device running Chrome OS, including personal computers when they're away from work.

See Cloud-managed Chrome Browser.

Support legacy browser apps

Your organization can take advantage of Chrome Browser while still easily accessing older websites and apps that require Internet Explorer. Just deploy the Chrome legacy browser extension.  When users click links in the Chrome Browser that instead require a legacy browser, the URL automatically opens in the legacy browser.
