This version of Accountable2You is primarily designed for Chromebook. For Windows, Mac and Linux users, this extension is not necessary if you already have Accountable2You installed to cover the whole computer.
**Note: If you have a school owned OR school administrated/managed Chromebook, please see the instructions for our Accountable2You School Edition installation.**
Installation Guide for Chrome
Step 1: On your Chomebook (or Chrome browser) open the Chrome Store and search for the Accountable2You Extension.
Press "Add To Chrome".
Step 2: Press "Add extension" to put the Extension into Chrome.
Step 3: Register this device
Accountable2You requires membership before you can use any of our products. If you do not have a membership press the "Signup" button and you will be taken to our website to enroll, after which you can return and select "Login". If you already have a membership press the "Login" button.
The next page will be the registration window. Fill in your Accountable2You account name, password and a name for this computer.
On the next screen, please read and accept the terms and conditions for using Accountable2You.
Step 4: Install the validator extension
In order for the Chrome version to monitor effectively, a separate extension must also be installed. To do this, simply click on the link provided under "Install Validation Extension".
When the validator install window opens, click "Add to Chrome"
Click "Add Extension"
When this step finishes, click either the "Refresh this screen" text or the AU browser icon in the top-right corner of your screen.
Step 5: Allow Incognito Monitoring
Return to the Accountable2You installation tab in your browser. Click on the link provided under the "Enable Incognito Monitoring" section.
Your browser's "Extensions" page will open and you will see all of your installed extensions listed. Find "Accountable2You" (note you may also see an "Accountable2You Validator" extension installed. You do not need to do anything to that extension, you are only concerned with the "Accountable2You" extension) and click "Details".
Once the details open, scroll down until you see an option that says "Allow in incognito". Turn the button to the right to the "On" position. This will finalize the setup process.
Step 6: Add Accountability Partners
Click on the "AU" icon in the top-right of your Chrome browser.
At the bottom of the screen that appears, click "Add Accountability Partners."
You will be directed to the Accountable2You website where you will login and register your new Chrome device to your partners.
