Are you someone who loves using Google Chrome or ChromeOS, but have been frustrated by the lack of parental controls? Then this bit of news will definitely cheer you up! Google has introduced a new supervised users feature into the beta channels of Chrome and ChromeOS that will help you lock your browser or system down and better protect your children.

The process of setting up supervised user accounts is basically the same as adding additional user accounts to your browser and/or system. Once you have the new user accounts added, log into the supervised users homepage to start managing the level of access for each new account.

You can learn more about the new supervised users feature, access instructions for setting up supervised accounts, and access the supervised users homepage via the links below.
