In a nutshell: I'd like to configure Chrome on shared computers so that students can log into the browser with their Google accounts, yet have Chrome automatically sign out (disconnect) their Google account when the student exits.
The ugly details...
I need to deploy Google Chrome browser (version 38) into 100+ Windows 7 computer labs in our K-12 schools. These are shared computers
in labs, and are not
joined to a domain (I've learned to leverage local group policy). The students all use a local "student" account to log into Windows.
So I'm building a Windows client group policy object for chrome to provide a common user experience across these computers and prevent students from tampering with the local settings. The Chromium project provides the required .amdx files (http://www.chromium.org/administrators
), and I've gotten the major features configured (proxy configuration, home page settings, popups, safe search, etc.), but I'm not finding any setting to allow students to log into the browser without keeping the account connected.
Having the browser delete cookies and clear cache files on exit doesn't do the trick. I'm beginning to think that there isn't a way to do what it is that I'm trying to do. What do you experts think?
