Because of their low cost and robustness, Chromebooks can be purchased as a family computer, to be shared between parents and children, or to be close to your friends. Because Chromebooks have more than one control, they require more than one login, so each user has access to their own features and themes.
Adding a new user to the Chromebook is not difficult. Here it should be:
- Click the button in the lower right corner (one that shows the time, battery life, etc.).
- Click “sign” at the top of the pop-up window.
- This will take you back to the login screen. At the bottom left of the screen, click the “Add Person” button.
- Allow new users to log in to their Google account (or they can create a new account if they do not already have one).
- Account credentials, history, passwords and other settings are typed into the new machine. If you want to modify any of these components, select the box that says “Review synchronization components after installation.” Then press “Accept and continue”.
- Here comes the requirements for the Google Play service. Continue reading if you are interested and agree.
- A check box that allows you to restore all your data to Google Drive. If you do not want that to happen, check the box. You will also be asked if you would like to allow the system to use your space (you can remove that box) and if you would like to review your Google Play options after you have logged in. .
- Done? Then tap “OK”.
- At this point, you will be asked if you have a Chromebook connected to your phone so that you can share your internet connection with your computer (available only with smartphones and Chromebooks), text messages from your computer, and use your phone to unlock your Chromebook. You can click “Accept and continue” if you want to do this, tap “No, thank you” if you do not want to do it at this time.
And it is ready! When you touch the login screen, you will see two names. Each user has an account and does not have access to another.
If you can’t share a Chromebook, you can simply remove users:
- Log in to your account to be redirected to the login screen.
- Click the down arrow next to the name of the person you want to remove the tools from.
- Click “Delete this user”. You will remember that everything related to the account, including files and local data, will be deleted.
Remember, you can easily remove other users attached to a system from the main login screen, and you can remove the “owner” of the Chromebook (the first person to create an account on it). ) without really defining the system.
If you want to allow someone to use your Chromebook for a couple of hours rather than a long time, it may be easier to let them sign as a guest.
- Enter in your account, so you return to the login screen.
- Click the “Browse as a Guest” button in the lower left corner of the screen.
- To exit guest mode, click the button in the lower right corner of the screen and click “Guest Space.”
When you are in guest mode, you can browse, use Bluetooth, change font size, etc., but can not save anything on your computer and stop and, according to Google, your files, cookies, data from websites and browsers will be removed.
