Following the staggering surge in popularity of Chromebooks in recent months, many parents like you have been requesting help to supervise their children’s devices. Unsurprisingly, this was mainly due to an unprecedented increase in homeschooling, and we were only too happy to oblige.
After some careful planning and investigation, Qustodio is pleased to confirm it has extended its protection to include Chromebook devices! This means your children’s web and app use on their Chromebook is fully protected. What’s more, you can also enjoy our time limits feature and use it to schedule your child’s day. We hope this will play a huge role in helping parents across the world adjust to the new normal and encourage safe and healthy digital habits every day.

Homeschooling is easier with Qustodio’s Chromebook protection!
Whether schools are open or closed, our kids still need to learn. As a temporary measure, many schools and educational institutions are providing children with Chromebooks to allow them to continue with their education during these uncertain times.
This is proving to be a very popular solution, as it’s the closest way of keeping kids up to date with the school curriculum and also lets them stay in contact with their friends and peers. At the same time, from a parent’s point of view, it can be a bit concerning to know our kids have access to the online world for the best part of the day and often unsupervised. We all know establishing a healthy work/life balance is hard enough, without throwing homeschooling into the mix! Luckily, Qustodio for Chromebook will take away that stress and uncertainty you’ve been feeling every day as soon as your child logs in to their device.
If your Chromebook is managed by your child’s school, please contact a teacher to make sure they allow third party extensions in their Google Suite account. This will enable you to install the Qustodio Extension on the device and give you that extra peace of mind, knowing that their online activity is safe all day long.
