Install Accountable2You for Chromebook

One: Before you begin, a few questions: 

  • Are you installing this Chrome extension on a Windows, Mac, or Linux device?
    • If yes, this extension is unnecessary. Use the hyperlinks shown above to install our whole-computer monitoring for those devices instead. 
  • Are you an administrator for your organization, deploying Accountable2You to all of your managed Chromebook devices?
    • If yes, you'll most likely want to use the "School Edition" of this same Chromebook extension, found here.
