But does that also mean they can't use history to look for web pages they visited earlier?

Hi all,

Ray B and I had a bit of a sidebar discussion inspired by the "Walled Garden" discussion. Ray had noticed that even when Browser History is set to Always Save, students could still delete browsing history. Rutland City uses a cloud based product that logs history in a separate console, but there is another way to ensure the browsing history stays intact.

The workaround from Google is this:

The Browser history policy in the Admin console will allow you to manage if the history is recorded or not on your users' profiles and if it is set to record the history, it still allows the users to go to the history page and delete it manually.

To prevent your users from deleting the browsing history on their profiles you can blacklist the local history page by adding to the URL Blocklist policy in the URL Blacklist section the chrome://history and the chrome://history-frame lines. By adding these to lines, your users will not be able to go to the history page and delete the history manually.
