Chrome device Quick Start Guide

Set up Chrome devices

This guide walks you through how to quickly set up your Chrome devices for your organization. For a more detailed guide, see the Chrome Device Deployment Guide.

We recommend setting up 1 Chrome device with the settings you want to use for all of your devices first. Then you can apply the settings to the rest of your devices. If you want to deploy a large number of devices for the first time, we recommend that you work with a G Suite Partner.
