Managed deployment using Google Admin console


Deploy the Push browser extension using Google Admin console.

Prerequisites: Complete the steps required for browsers in your organization to be managed via the Google Admin console. For more information on enrolling browsers, refer to the Set up Chrome Browsers guide from Google.

You could have access to the Google Admin console through any of the following products:
