I've received a new Macbook that formally was fully managed including Chrome, I can't seem to figure out how to remove these management policies.

I've tried deleted the data folder, managed preference files etc... no matter what I do these policies seem to stick.

How do I go about removing them?

Hi all,
This is actually quite easy. To get rid of the "managed by organization" notification, you'll have to remove the admin preference files from "menu bar > preferences > profiles" AND you need to unset the policies that are listed at page chrome://policy
The policy remover made by Product Expert Stefan vd can help but mind that it removes the organization's preferences files no matter if these files are made by you or by malware.
  1. download the Chrome Policy Remover for Mac (made by Product Expert (PE) Stefan vd)
  2. close all open Chrome windows
  3. unzip the file you just downloaded
  4. double click on "chrome-policy-remove-and-remove-profile-mac"
Now, restart Chrome and the issue should be resolved. If not, you may need to restart your Mac.
More about malware and SearchMine can be found at the non-enterprise Chrome forum:
