Add a person to your Chromebook
You can let other people sign in to your Chromebook using their Google accounts. This option is best for people who will be using your Chromebook regularly, such as family members. This is how to do it:
- If you're signed in to your Chromebook, sign out.
- On the bottom, click Add person.
- Enter the Google account email address and password, then click Next.
- Follow the steps that appear.
Tip: If your friend doesn't have an account, they can create a Google account.
What info people will see
When someone signs in to your Chromebook, they’ll see all their data synced in Chrome, such as apps, wallpaper and bookmarks. They can also use all of Google's web services (such as Gmail and Google Drive) using their own account, rather than yours. All of their information and files are kept separate from yours.
