Chrome OS device Quick Start

5. Enroll Chrome OS devices

To enforce the device policies you set in your Google Admin console, you need to enroll your Chrome OS devices. Each device you enroll adheres to the policies you set until you wipe or recover it.

Before you begin

  • Before you can start to enroll devices you must accept the Terms of Service (TOS) agreement by doing the following:
    1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

      Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

    2. Go to Devicesand thenChrome devices.
    3. In the TOS pop-up, click I Accept.
  • If you're setting up devices for a large group, across several office locations or classrooms, you might decide to give the devices to others to enroll. Before you do this, enroll a single device to test that the management policies work correctly.

Enroll your devices

As an administrator, you can enroll devices or allow users to enroll them using the Enrollment Permissions policy.

Chrome OS devices bundled with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade with Chrome version 80 or later preinstalled automatically prompt users to enroll. If they’re not prompted to enroll, users should press Ctrl+Alt+E.

You’ll need to manually enroll standalone devices that you purchased upgrades for. For instructions how to enroll a device, see Enroll Chrome OS devices.

If you run into issues while enrolling the device, you might need to wipe and re-enroll the device.
