Security,  built in.

With features like built-in virus protection and secure support for multiple

users, HP Chromebook keeps you and your data protected.



Chrome OS keeps different software on your HP Chromebook separate with sandboxing. So even if one part gets infected, the rest is designed to stay safe.

Verified boot

Every time your HP Chromebook starts up, it goes through Verified Boot — a rigorous and seamless security check-up in the background that prevents malware.

Security chip

Protect your data. Every HP Chromebook includes a built-in security chip to encrypt your most sensitive data and keep it away from prying eyes. Know your HP Chromebook will stay safe.

Built-in virus protection

Built-in virus protection defends your HP Chromebook from malware automatically. You can focus on what you need to do, instead of installing third-party security software.

Guest mode

Instant Tethering with HP Chromebook keeps you connected to your phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot automatically.


In the rare event that something does go wrong, a fresh start is just a click away. With the powerwashing feature on your HP Chromebook, you can easily reset your device to factory settings and get rid of malware in the process.

Multi-user support

Share your HP Chromebook without sharing what’s personal — a single HP Chromebook can support multiple users while maintaining each person’s privacy.


Family Link

The Family Link app from Google helps you set digital ground rules for children using HP Chromebooks. Set screen time limits and adjust their account settings.
