ChromeOS device Quick Start

5. Enroll ChromeOS devices

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

    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.

ChromeOS devices bundled with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade or Chrome Education Upgrade automatically prompt users to enroll after they accept the end-user license agreement. After enrollment, users can sign in and start using the device. If they’re not prompted to enroll, users should press Ctrl+Alt+E or select Enterprise enrollment before anyone signs in.

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

Note: To enroll using Kiosk & Signage Upgrade, devices must be running ChromeOS version 104 or later.

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