The Complete Guide To Manage Google Chrome's Supervised Users

Google has just added a new feature called "Supervised User Account" which allows you to see all browsing activity, block sites/sub-domains, and other cool features to ensure your child's not going on all those sites you don't want him to see, which we earlier mentioned here. Here is the complete and easy guide on how to use this new feature and maintain the online activities of the supervised users!

Getting Started

First, you need to be signed into Chrome Sync, which you can do by clicking on Chrome > Chrome Menu > Sign in to Chrome.

Creating Profiles

After you sign-in to Chrome, click on the Chrome Menu  and click on "Settings" and there, click on "Add New User". or simply copy this "chrome://settings/createProfile" address and paste it in your Chrome browser and press enter.

Now create a new user profile, enter the desired name and check/tick the "This is a supervised user managed" box and click create.

 After creating a "supervised user" profile, Chrome will show you a pop-up and sent an e-mail to you about the supervised user account's way of usage and other information.

Managing Users

You can manage all "supervised users" from

Supervised User Manager

On the Supervised User Manager you can see all user activity which includes website names, address, visit time, day, removing users, granting permissions and responding to in-coming user requests and controlling search safety.

  Using Supervised User Manager

If you want to allow only specific sites to the supervised user account, click on "Manage" under the "Permissions" section and choose "only specific sites" from the menu and then add the desired site addresses and click on "Ok". You can block a whole domain and/or allow only sub-domains from a full site, by choosing the different options under the "Behavior" section.

To block specific sites click on "Manage" and enter the address of the sites you want to block and click on "Ok". You can block whole domains, or block only specific addresses or just allow sub-domains from a full site, by choosing the different options from the "Behaviour" section.

While a supervised user account is trying to access blocked sites, the user will see a notification saying "You need a permission from - Your Name- to access this page" and the user can send you a request asking you to allow that site, which you can allow or deny the request from the manager.

This is an example picture showing an active dashboard of a manager account which displays requests, browsing activity, and blocked sites:
