[How to create and manage Supervised Users on Chromebook]

Create & manage supervised users

Supervised users are primarily intended for parents to identify and manage the websites their children visit when they share a single Chromebook at home.

Parents have owner rights, and each child can create a login account for their Chromebook, and the owner can manage the following tasks:
  • Identify the websites you've visited.
  • Allow or block specific websites.
  • Prevent users from installing apps and extensions.
  • Make sure users are using SafeSearch (enabled by default).
  • Adjust user settings.

What is a supervised user?

Managed users can browse the websites within the administrator-defined scope. Administrators of a supervised user (owner) can do the following in Chrome: Allow or block specific websites Review websites visited by other users manage other settings

Managed users do not need a Google Account. Their settings and data will not be synced to other devices through Chrome sign-in sync. Administered users only apply to this device.
