FAQ

Do I need to install virus protection on my Chromebook?

 

No antivirus software is needed. Chromebooks come with built-in malware and virus protection, with multiple layers of security:

Automatic update system: Virus protection stays up-to-date automatically, so you are always running the latest and most secure version. Chrome manages your updates silently in the background.

Sandboxing: Each Web page and application runs in a restricted "sandbox" environment. If one tab is infected, it can't infect other tabs, apps, or anything else on your Chromebook.

Data encryption: All data is encrypted for each account, meaning that you must be signed in to access your data, and no other person can access data from a different account.
