    signing into Google Apps

    I know that probably the answer to this question is 'no' but :

    We are experimenting with Google Apps for Education.

    With Chrome there is a policy that you can use to restrict which accounts can log into Google. I only want students to be able to use their school provided google accounts when logging in. On our machines we also have Firefox and IE11. Is there any way to restrict who can log into Google using Firefox and IE11?

    I have a feeling that Chrome policy only affects sign-in to Chrome itself - I think you could still sign into the the actual web services with any account (though I'm not certain).

    For other browsers you'll need to look at doing this on your proxy filtering. I seem to recall there's a way to do it in Smoothwall that has been detailed before on Edugeek, so have a search if you have a Smoothwall filter, or get in touch with support directly.
