GoGuardian uses two Google Chrome extensions, Chromium M and Chromium License, to filter and monitor students. Keeping your students on the latest version of the extensions helps you stay in control of their browsing activity.
Important: Ensure that Chromium M is newer than version 3.0.1023.2
There are a few ways to update the extensions:
Method #1 (Recommended): Ask the student to restart their device.
Method #2: Ask the student to back up any saved work on Google Drive, then log out of their Chromebook, delete the student's user profile (this will delete local data, including our extensions), and log back into their Chromebook. This will force the device to automatically download the newest version.
Method #3: If they have developer tools enabled, they can go to chrome://extensions and press “update extensions now” to immediately update the extensions without restarting their device or browser.
