Chromebooks with Managed Public Sessions Make Perfect Shared Kiosks

The updated Admin Console in Chrome OS now includes a new feature called “Managed Public Sessions,” for managed devices that allow policy management without user login.

Administrators can easily customize any Chrome device to be a public session device using the web-based management console.

“The features that you’ll find in the console include the ability to set the default sites and apps a user sees at login, custom brand the homepage, block sites and apps that shouldn’t be accessed, configure device inputs and outputs, and set timed log-out sessions,” Google explains.

For security reasons, public session data is cleared on logout so the next user starts fresh.”

Here is what you could use a Chromebook with Managed Public Sessions to:

  • “Order out-of-stock items online while at a retail store
  • Search for books and browse the web at the library
  • Update machine and inventory info from the manufacturing floor
  • Access the company portal and update HR info from the employee break room
  • Catch up on work in a hotel business center,” Google informed.
