Logging into ChromeOS (such as Chromebook)

Environment

ChromeOS, Chromebook

Issue

How should I log into ChromeOS, or with a Chromebook?

Resolution

  • It is recommended that you log in to ChromeOS devices (like a Chromebook) with a personal account, and not your U-M Google (umich.edu) account.
  • You cannot use a PIN to login with a Chromebook, if trying to use a U-M Google account.
  • U-M Google accounts do not have Wallet enabled, so you cannot access the Play Store and apps, even if they are free.
  • If you login with a personal account into the device, then you can open a Gmail webpage and switch that page to your U-M Google mail account, for example.
