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.
She is using the Lenovo Ideapad Duet Chromebook and by default, the guest login is enabled.
To disable the guest login use the Parent Login account.
- Go to the Settings Menu
- Click on security and privacy
- Click on manage other people
- Make sure the toggle for the Enable Guest Browsing is not blue. It needs to be disabled.
- Logout and check whether the Guest Browsing option is available at the login screen
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.
