    Chrome - Students Signing in as Themselves. Gotta Stop That...

    Hi - have a query from another place that's friendly to my establishment asking for a had.

    A class of students have been given their own google accounts to use chrome and gmail with. No GADS/GAM here just independent. Problem is they're signing in as their PERSONAL chrome accounts sometimes, and with that all their bookmarks and addons etc.

    This isn't what they want them to do - they'd rather restrict signing in to just the accounts the school have set up.

    Is there any convenient GP based way to achieve this? Or any other way even?

    Thanks hugely for any help.

    I've not found it yet... The best I've managed is to disable sync in the administrative templates, so the bookmarks and add-ons don't come down.

    isn't it possible to somehow link it with their AD credentials (SSO) so that it is an auto login?

    Thanks - I think I found it in there amongst the list: RestrictSigninToPattern

    Looks promising so that'll be first port of call

    @fiza I'm not sure about that one, and I wonder that I'd need GADS/GAM for that.

    Depending on your setup, this might help.

    @OB1, how would one go about implementing that in Smoothwall? Preferably for specified user groups, so I could block it for pupils but not staff.

    Similar method to Youtube for Schools, except you'll need to create a custom category that contains google.com to use as your 'what'.

    You can do this in Smoothwall, under User Defined policy objects, create a new one, label it to whatever you want. Click Advanced and under Headers to override, put: X-GoogApps-Allowed-Domains: yourdomain. Then assign the policy to the group you want.
