Cloud Identity Overview

Cloud Identity is an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) and enterprise mobility management (EMM) product. It offers the identity services and endpoint management that are available in Google Workspace as a stand-alone product, and this includes Chrome browser management. As an administrator, you can use Cloud Identity to manage your users, apps, and devices from a central location—the Google Admin console.

You can also use Cloud Identity accounts with other Google products, such as Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Chrome browser, Android enterprise, as well as a large catalog of third-party applications.

With Cloud Identity, you can turn on Chrome Sync so your users can save and sync things such as their history, bookmarks, and passwords. After the information is saved, users can access it on any device by signing in with their Google account. You can also use Cloud Identity to manage your users' browsers and get access to reports on their browser usage.

Note: If you are a Google Workspace customer, you already have access to Chrome Sync and Chrome's policy management through the Admin console. See below for more details.
