How to repurpose a Chrome license to another device


You want to know if it's possible to repurpose licenses and reuse the licenses with new devices?


  • ChromeOS


Chrome Management Perpetual Licenses are attached to the device until its end of life, so when a device is deprovisioned the license cannot be retaken unless the customer receives a new device in replacement by warranty for the vendor or the manufacturer, or he has received the same device from repair but with a different serial number.
  • Latest Chrome Service License Agreement where the bullet 1.10 section D states the following:
    • Replacement Customer Hardware. During the Term, the Customer may, via such procedure as Google may prescribe, transfer a subscription license to the Services from an enrolled Customer Hardware to a replacement Customer Hardware. The customer may make such subscription license transfer even if the enrolled Customer Hardware is no longer included in the Auto Update Policy, so long as such transfer occurs during the Term. For clarify, the ability to transfer subscription licenses, as permitted in this Section 1.10 (D) (Replacement Customer Hardware), will not apply to a perpetual subscription license.
