"Setting enforced by admin" on personal, powerwashed Chromebook 1 Recommended Answer 22 Replies 14 Upvotes

Good day,

After setting up my Chromebook from a powerwash, I noticed that the "Android Device" underneath the "Connected Devices" section of settings was permanently set to the off position, and the reason given was that an "administrator" has enforced the option. 

This is strange, considering that before the powerwash, I was allowed to change this setting with no restriction. What's also weird is how this is a personal Chromebook device that has been connected to no administrations during its entire lifespan. I have attached an image below.

I feel I should also mention that the reason I powerwashed this Chromebook was because of a red-texted warning that showed up on the login screen, stating something along the lines of untrusted apps not from the play store being installed on the device, which I don't remember doing.

Is there any solution to this problem?
If it helps, I'm using a Samsung Chromebook Plus (kevin), with ChromeOS version 79.0.3945.86, 32-bit. I have also installed the TPM firmware update long ago, although developer mode is now disabled. OS verification is on, and the write-protect screw on the motherboard is present.

Thanks,
Edin O.

I'm using an address from a private domain, specifically teknik.io.

There you go. You will have to work with that domain admin to fix the problem.

Powerwashed Pixelbook and then noticed after that had the admin icon on the connected devices, powerwashed again and it's still there. Kind of frustrating that it was fine before and now this is showing up.
