GoGuardian Admin is a versatile cloud filtering solution that allows users to efficiently manage and monitor student activities on their school network. It is primarily used for filtering Chrome OS devices, but also supports Windows machines. Users find it convenient as it ensures a seamless transition without changing settings or inconveniencing them.

One of the key use cases of GoGuardian Admin is its ability to track student website visits, providing valuable insights into device usage and enabling educators to address academic dishonesty cases effectively. The software's content filtering capabilities, powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence, work in tandem with traditional allow and blocklists to ensure student safety online. It can analyze the content on the screen, regardless of the URL, and promptly block inappropriate content while alerting the admin team.

Additionally, GoGuardian Admin plays a crucial role in enhancing student well-being. It has the capability to detect self-harm and suicide ideation content, triggering alerts in such instances. This feature enables schools to proactively intervene and provide support to students in need. Furthermore, the software offers practical solutions for managing Chromebooks at scale by assisting in tracking lost or stolen devices, providing easy device location as soon as they come online.

Another significant use case of GoGuardian Admin is its ability to delegate certain administrative tasks to specific admins based on organizational units. Building administrators find this feature valuable as they can effectively control student access to websites without requiring assistance. They can easily access student history and utilize parent reports during meetings to illustrate student activities, fostering productive collaborations between administrators, teachers, and parents.

  • Web Filtering
  • Chromebook Livefeed/Monitoring
  • GoGuardian Admin technical support is fantastic, and is always available
  • Ease of creating individual policies based on Google Admin Console OU
  • With the new Minnesota state laws regarding student data privacy - it made it somewhat challenging for us to continue utilizing GoGuardian Admin. However, they provided some updates to their software to address these issues.
  • GoGuardian Admin recently put out an option to checkbox COPPA/CIPA compliance verifications for web filtering. It seems that this still needs some work, as several educational websites we utilize are coming up as "uncategorized" - and then are being falsely flagged and declining access.

  • Content Filtering : On and Off Campus
  • Device Tracking & Locating
  • URL History
  • The system cannot inform our team about cyber bullying or harassment.
  • Students can still play some games if those games are loaded to a Google Site.
  • There are times when a Chromebook that hasn't been restarted in a while will not show up online. This is problematic as students do not restart as much as they should.

  • The reporting Dashboard page gives you a great picture of what your users are doing on the internet.
  • The Theft recovery piece works very well and helps recover devices that are missing in action.
  • The reports are almost too broad.
  • Intuitive things like clicking on a URL in the top-visited section does not drill down into who was visiting that website.
