Deprecated Chrome policies

Last updated for Chrome 70.

Applies to managed Chrome Browsers and Chrome devices.

For administrators who manage Chrome Browser or Chrome devices for a business or school.

You can use Chrome policies to control how your users experience Chrome Browser and devices running Chrome OS. New releases of Chrome introduce new policies and sometimes deprecate old ones. Deprecated policies continue to work in the current release, but they will be removed from future releases of Chrome.

You can unset deprecated policies using the same policy-management tools you used to set them. We recommend replacing deprecated policies with an alternative policy (see below). You should unset policies you’re not using.

For full descriptions of Chrome policies, including the deprecated ones, see the Policy List.
