By default the Chrombook allows anyone with a Google account to sign in. But for some, that amount of sharing might be a little too open. If you would like to limit who can sign in to your Chomebook to a specific list of users, open settings and search restrict. You’ll be guided to the “Manage other users…” button.

Click Done and close settings and now only those on your list can sign into your Chrombook. (Don’t forget you may also want to disallow Guest access too.)

My brand new Acer Chromebook 15 has a problem with the display. The line appears randomly and can be “dismissed” by strategically tapping on the (non-touch) screen. Amazon is sending me a replacement.
