Choose your Chrome licenses
Before you can manage Chrome devices in your organization, you need a Chrome license for each device you want to enroll. Then, you can use the Google Admin console to enroll devices, configure settings, and apply policies.
There are 4 types of licenses available for purchase.
- Chrome Education, Chrome Enterprise, and Chrome Nonprofit—These licenses allow you to configure settings and enforce policies for specific Chrome devices. You can control user access, customize features, configure network access, and more. Choose one, depending on your organization type.
- Single app Chrome kiosk device management—This license gives you access to the settings you need to configure, deploy, and monitor a Chrome device running as a single-app kiosk. It’s perfect for a device that's used exclusively as a kiosk, such as a digital sign or point-of-sale system in a store. However, it can’t be used for public-session kiosks. This license is only available to business customers.
