Chromebook features for the entire family

Chromebooks are designed to handle everything important to you and your family—simply and safely. Chromebooks run ChromeOS, the secure operating system powered by Google, and come in a range of sizes to suit your needs. Setup is easy and fast, with features to help keep your family productive, entertained, and safe online.

Your secure family computer

Chromebook comes with built-in virus protection to help keep your data protected. Google Family Link allows you to manage your child's Chromebook by setting screen time limits and controlling what content they can access. With multi-user login, each family member has their own private space on one shared laptop.

Simple and speedy for everyone in your family

Setting up your Chromebook is as simple as logging in to your Google account—giving you instant access to your documents. Long battery life and offline access to Google Docs, Google Sheets, Gmail, and more help you stay on track with tasks and schoolwork, even when you're on the go. And to help things run smoothly, Chromebooks update automatically*, keeping the software speedy and up-to-date with the latest features.
