G Suite for Education Device Settings (Optional): Step 2 Follow

Disable Guest mode

This is configured in the Google Admin console at:

admin.google.com > Device management > Chrome management > Device settings > Guest Mode 

This needs to be set to Do not allow guest mode.

If either of the two policies in steps one and two are not set as we recommend, a student will be able to:

  • Sign in to their device using a guest or non-school account (the extension will not be installed)
  • Sign into Google directly, using their school account

Once signed into Google they can use Google services but they won’t have the extension installed and won’t appear in Highlights.
