How do I limit the number of users accessing the Securly UI?

Just as admins find it necessary to share their admin responsibilities with other co-workers, sometimes they also need to restrict the number of people who access the Securly UI. Any admin with access to the Securly UI can change policy settings, allow/block websites and keywords, update OUs etc. At times this can be a security risk.

Until recently, the Securly UI could be accessed by anyone who has been assigned the super admin or another custom role in G-Suite. School admins have their unique reasons to grant other users super admin permissions in G-Suite.

However, considering the security concerns cited by some users we have introduced a second layer of permissions for access to the Securly UI. As such only a user who is a G-Suite admin and part of the Securly Admins group will be able to access the Securly UI.

Setup required

  1. Create an OU titled SecurlyAdmins in G-Suite.


  1. Add the desired users to this newly created OU.


  1. Import the OU to Securly.

The users in the ‘SecurlyAdmins’ OU would now be the only ones with access to the Securly UI. You can add any number of users to this OU at your discretion.

Note that if the school does not create the ‘SecurlyAdmins’ OU all super admin role users will have access to the Securly UI.
