"We have identified the root cause and have pushed a fix that we believe will resolve this issue for affected customers. Please note that in order to receive this fix, you will have to manually connect affected devices to a network."


  1. Connect to a network. On each affected device, connect to a network.
  2. Update the policies. Once connected, the Chrome device will automatically fetch an updated Chrome policy, which will resolve this issue. To ensure that the policies are updated, go to chrome://policy and press Reload policies.

Once you complete these steps, the Chrome device will reconnect to the managed WiFi network automatically.
