No-brainer for Every Google Workspace Admin: Endpoint Verification

What is endpoint verification?

It is a Chrome Extension that you can push to your users, which gathers and reports information about devices that are accessing your organization’s data.

Recommended Setting

  1. Go to https://admin.google.com/ac/chrome/apps/user
  2. Click on + icon on the bottom right, then select Add from Chrome Web Store (apply the setting at Root OU if you want everyone to inherit the setting)
  3. Search for Endpoint Verification
  4. Select Force install + pin

What’s the Impact for the End Users?

The change impact is very minimal. You can share the article below with your users to let them know about the information that is gathered by the extension.

  • For BYOD devices, the setting will apply only if the users are signed-in to Chrome
  • For company-owned devices, it is recommended that you push the extension using EMM (Intune, Jamf, etc.) or use CBCM to push the extension to the enrolled browsers.
