How do I keep students from installing games on their Chromebooks?

Students can download a lot of games and other non-educational apps and time-sinks on their Chromebooks once they are handed over to them by schools. Such apps are easily available on the internet and can at times also be shared via Google Drive. It is therefore important to enforce restrictions on app installations on Chromebooks that are sent home.

To restrict app installations:

  1. Log in to your G Suite account at
  2. Navigate to Devices > Chrome > Apps and Extensions
  3. Select the "Block all other apps and extensions" option from the dropdown for the Allow or Block Apps and Extension field. Gsuitenew5.jpg
