How do I keep students from disabling the Securly extension in the task manager on their Chromebooks?


It is possible for students to kill Chrome extensions and other processes that are essential to ensuring a safe online experience for them. All they need is access to the Task Manager to do this. Giving students the ability to access the Task Manager is disruptive to schools' ability to manage and secure Chromebooks. It is therefore recommended that you disable the task manager for students on their Chromebooks.

To do this:

  1. Log in to your G Suite admin console at
  2. Navigate to Device Management > Chrome Management > User Settings chromebooksguide5.jpg
  3. Scroll down to Apps and Extensions > Task Manager
  4. Select the ‘Block user from ending processes with the Chrome task manager’ option from the dropdown. disabletaskmanagerpg11.png
