Multiple layers of security
From the moment you open your Chromebook, you’re protected by multiple layers of security to defend against malware and viruses.
Google Security Chip
Every Chromebook is built with a Google Security Chip, which encrypts and protects your most sensitive on-device data.
Sandboxing separates the important functions of your Chromebook. That way, if you encounter malware in one program, it stays contained and quarantined.
Chromebooks support multiple accounts, so you always have your own space—even on a shared computer. With a simple login, all your apps, preferences, settings and files are ready and waiting for you.
Chromebooks go through a verified boot process when they start up and automatically revert to a prior version if they detect anything unsafe.
Spotlight on Family Link
Set digital ground rules
The Family Link app from Google helps you set digital ground rules as your child explores on their Chromebook. You can set screen time limits, manage the content they can access, and adjust their account settings.
