How to manage guest session devices

  1. In the Admin console, go to Menu > Devices > Chrome > Settings > Managed guest sessions.

  3. Next to Managed guest session, choose an option: To use managed guest sessions on ChromeOS devices, select Allow managed guest sessions. To automatically launch a managed guest session, select Auto-launch managed guest session.
  4. Enter the name that you want your users to see for the session. For example, Fremont High School Library or Solarmora shared computer.
  5. Click the settings you want to configure for managed guest sessions.
