See if your Chromebook or Chrome browser is managed

If you’re using a Chromebook or a Chrome browser at school or work, it might be managed by an administrator.

Check if your Chromebook is managed

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

  1. Go to the status area where your account picture appears.
  2. Look for the managed device icon Managed Chrome icon. If you see the icon, your device is managed.

When you sign in to a managed Chromebook, some features are already set up for you. Your 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 a different Google Account.

Check if your Chrome browser is 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 and you go to about:policy, you'll see "No policies set."
