  • 1. Why Use Chrome? *Available only for Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government. The web browser is one of the most important pieces of software on your computer; even more so if you utilize Google Apps. Google Chrome has been designed with this in mind and seamlessly integrates Google Apps into the browser. On top of that, Chrome has become the browser of choice because of its speed, simplicity, security and additional extensions. By signing in to Chrome, you will be able to use the browser you are used to, complete with all of your bookmarks, passwords, and themes, even if you are not on your usual computer. Unlike other browsers, Chrome remains up-to-date by automatically downloading and applying updates so your browser’s security settings are always current. The Chrome Management feature is highly attractive to businesses, in that you can manage the Chrome devices on your domain from the admin console. Within the console you will be able to pre-configure a list of installed apps that will automatically be installed to Chrome when the user signs-in to the browser. These include a preset Apps pack for Business, as well as any app from the Chrome Store. Furthermore, you can safeguard your user’s computers by preventing them from proceeding to sites Google has detected are malicious. Also, Chrome Management gives the admin the ability to block certain sites through Chrome and always block pop-ups for their users. Using Chrome with Chromebooks Should your company utilize Chromebooks, the admin will be able to manage these devices from the admin console as well, with even more advanced feature available. For instance, you can control user access to prevent people outside your domain from accessing the hardware and set a screen lock time limit. If the devices are frequently used in the same network, you can also push out network settings to the Chromebooks so the end users will not have to worry about selecting the correct network. Configurable and Manageable Features Using Chrome Management ● Policy refresh rate ● Java Script - Blocked or Allowed by site ● Allowed Types of Apps and Extensions ● Desktop Notifications ● Pre-Installed Apps and Extensions ● Plug-ins - Blocked or Allowed by site ● Pinned Apps and Extensions ● Enabled and Disabled Plug-ins ● Chrome Web Store Homepage ● Plugin Finder ● Chrome Web Store Permissions ● Plugin Authorization ● Password Manager ● Outdated Plugins ● Show Password Button ● Pop-ups ● Screen Lock ● URL Blocking ● Incognito Mode ● Google Drive Syncing

If your company is small, you may instruct your users to download Chrome from the web at www.google.com/chrome. If you would like to globally push out a deployment of Chrome to the company at the system level, with specific policies in place via a configuration file, follow the guide found here to create an installer package.
