Check if your Chrome browser is managed

If you use Chrome at school or work, it might be managed, or set up and maintained by a school, company, or other group.

If your Chrome browser is managed, your administrator can set up or restrict certain features, install extensions, monitor activity, and control how you use Chrome.

If you use a Chromebook, see if your Chromebook is managed.

  1. Open Chrome Chrome.
  2. At the top right, select More More .
  3. Check the bottom of the menu. If you see “Managed by your organization,” your browser is managed. If you don’t, your browser isn’t managed.

View policies

If your browser is managed, you can see the policies that are set by your organization.

  1. Open Chrome Chrome.
  2. In the address bar, type chrome://policy and press Enter.

If any applied policies look suspicious, you can report malicious software to our team.


If you’re an administrator, learn more about Chrome Enterprise for a business or school.
