Enabling Chromebook PIN

Posted on: November 5, 2016

In August, Google enabled a PIN option for Chromebook logins in the developer OS.

That option is available now in the stable OS for anyone who does not appreciate the first world problem of having to type in a long Google password.

If you want this experimental feature, do these to enable the Chromebook PIN:

  1. Update to the latest version of stable Chrome OS.
  2. In the URL bar, enter chrome://flags/#quick-unlock-pin and enable this option.
  3. Then enter chrome://md-settings, enable the PIN option by first typing your Google password.
    “Password” will be the only initial option. The PIN option will appear after your type in your Google password.
  4. Set a PIN and test that it works (log out and in).
