In this article, I will detail step by step instructions on how to disable the guest browsing on a Chromebook. With guest browsing, you don’t need a username and password to log in and you will still be able to use Chrome to browse the Internet. I found out my daughter was able to still use her Chromebook after I locked her from using the Chromebook. She’s too clever for her own good but she can’t outsmart me.

For those of you who are not familiar with Chromebooks, I highly recommend you test one out. I find them to be more useful when using them as a portable laptop or device as the battery life is amazing. If you won’t use a particular Windows or Mac tool and only use a browser then you should definitely check out a Chromebook. Also, with a Chromebook, you can also install Android apps through Google Play so you will still be able to use most of your favourite apps.
