How do I stop plugins from asking students for authorization when they install or initialize?


Plugins are an essential component of websites and need to be installed or accepted for good user experience. However, certain plugins require authorization from the user before they install or initialize. This can be an irritant for students if they are required to authorize plugins every time they initialize. To avoid this situation it is recommended that you follow the white-listed approach of only letting plugins that are installed by the admin run on student Chromebooks. This can be achieved by auto acknowledging these authorization requests so that they are never presented to the students and they have a seamless user experience.

To do this:

  1. Log in to your G Suite account at
  2. Navigate to Device Management > Chrome Management > User Settings chromebooksguide5.jpg
  3. Scroll down to Content > Plugin Authorization 
  4. Select the ‘Always run plugins that require authorization’ option from the dropdown for the Plugin Authorization field. pluginauthorizationpg8.png
