About managed Chromebooks and Chrome browsers

How can I tell if my Chromebook is being managed?

A managed Chromebook is set up and maintained by a school or company.

If you see the Managed Chrome icon managed icon in the status area in the lower right-hand side of your screen when you're signed in to your Chromebook, your device is managed.

When you sign in to a managed Chromebook, some features are already set up for you. Your network administrator can install apps, set up printers, and manage how you use your Chromebook. The administrator settings may apply to your Chromebook even if you sign in with your personal Google Account.

How can I tell if my Chrome browser is being managed?

If you're using a managed browser, you'll see a list of policies when you type "about:policy" in the Chrome browser address bar. If your browser isn't being managed, going to "about:policy," you'll see "No policies set." Learn more about using Chrome for Work.
