Yeah, not aware of any way to do that.  It would be nice.  Most kids here just keep using the password I give them, if not, we reset it if necessary to conduct an investigation of this sort, then send them a note to let them know how to get back in.

Thanks Robert - that's exactly what I need.  I just need an easy way to access this from the Admin console..... hmm...

PS, if what you find there is a lot of machines the user says he never used, chances are his password is/was compromised.

Unless the prankster knows the password of the person whose account was used, the most likely scenario is the latter user logged into Chrome on a machine such as an iPad, or a Windows machine where one common account is used by everyone, and the next person to use the machine ended up access to that account.  Ya gotta be careful just how you check or send mail on shared machines. 

The chromebook inventory plugin is great, if the device you suspect the offending messages are sent from is a managed Chromebook.  Otherwise I don't see how that would help. This isn't a total solution, but you might glean a clue or two by going to Google Security Checkup (Google it. of course), and take a look at the connected devices, while logged in as the user who sent the message.  That'll tell you what type of device they were logged into, at least. The odd thing is, sometimes it tells you more than that.  Sometimes when it says I was using a Windows machine, if I click on it, it'll tell me the name of the machine.  Sometimes it won't.

I was just about to share that Google Sheets Add-in…  It can be very helpful.

 

You can start to get more detail from Chromebook use if you turn on some of the User & Device Reporting settings in the Admin Console.

Admin > Device Management > Chrome > Device Settings > User & Device Reporting

Try enabling the Device State and User Tracking.  It doesn’t give you lots of data, but you will see a list of users that have logged in, MAC addresses of the devices, etc.  I use the Add-in that Robert suggested below to search and filter for specific stuff.

 

Hope that helps,
Mike

Hey Melissa,

 

Here is a tool that I use here at WCSU;

 

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chromebookinventory/iifofihmahmlokfnajjngehfnilmdmei?hl=en

 

It is a plugin for Google sheets that pulls a lot of data from your data base and you can search for items within the organization. I have not found a way myself to search for logged in devices outside of the organization from the console and wouldn’t mind seeing if anyone had any information to add to that.

Hi Listers - 

We have some students logging in as other students and sending messages.  I can use Google Admin > Reports > Audit : Login to pull the IP addresses where the account was accessed, however I cannot see any device-specific information.  All activity that happens at our site comes out as one IP address, whether it's a Chromebook, Windows Laptop, or personal device connected to wi-fi.  I'm looking to see if anyone knows of a way to see what devices were used (beyond our managed Chromebooks).

 

Thanks!

--Melissa
