If your cromebook is a part of a school district this is a bad idea, you could get in a lot of trouble, plus those rules are there for a reason.

no, so you don't play games and stuff


"That reason is to make sure these devices can never be reused."

@guardian10 No, it isn't. It's there to secure the asset as a school owned device if it's lost or stolen (the filtering is a bonus, and basically required by law, see CIPA :/), but they often forget to remove it. It's like BIOS passwords on Dell surplus; I know how to deal with it, but it's fixable. Not on HP or Lenovo. I don't discuss how to break BIOS passwords, so don't ask.

Same issue w/ Computrace -- lazy admins forget. But Absolute will remove it if it's very clearly an old hobbyist purchase, like my Quadro 160M E6400. If I know ahead of time, I know I need to call Absolute, then setup the laptop, then let it sit.

I got my kicks in against school IT in middle and high school and got my chops early; then went straight for certs and work. The stunts I got away with make me beyond qualified to debunk this.


This was a very good post, I was about to delete my administrator but then I read this.

Thank you!

The MDM is tied to Google using the device S/N, and a firmware lock. Unless you reflash the firmware and change the serial number (which will effectively do the same as replacing the board!!!), there's no way to remove it. It's effectively the same as MDM like Apple Business Manager and Jamf which tie to a provisioning ID unique to the machine and S/N.

If there was a way, do you not think I'd break into a few of the reasonably new ones so I take home a few and claim a "prize" mocking the effectiveness of it I can use? The only way this gets removed is by the ORIGINAL OWNER unless you change the motherboard. I usually don't bother especially on school surplus which is beaten to death (or at least very, very abused and will likely need a chassis in short order) by students at the same time it's decommed.
