Install the GlobalProtect App from the Chrome Web Store

You can install the GlobalProtect app on a Chromebook by downloading the app from the Chrome Web Store. As an alternative, you can Deploy the GlobalProtect App Using the Chromebook Management Console.
  1. Create an agent configuration for testing the app installation.
    As a best practice, create an agent configuration that is limited to a small group of users, such as administrators in the IT department who are responsible for administering the firewall.
    1. Select NetworkGlobalProtectPortals
    2. Select an existing portal configuration or Add a new one.
    3. On the Agent tab, select an existing agent configuration or Add a new one to deploy to the test users/group.
    4. On the User/User Group tab, Add the User/User Group that will test the app.
    5. Select the OS you are testing (in this example, select Chrome), and then click OK.
    6. (Optional) On the Agent tab, select the agent configuration that you just created or modified, and then click Move Up so that it is higher in the list than the more generic configurations you have created.
    7. Click OK, and then Commit the changes.
  2. Install the GlobalProtect app for Chrome OS.
    You can also force-install the app on managed Chromebooks using the Chromebook Management Console. See Deploy the GlobalProtect App Using the Chromebook Management Console.
    1. From your Chromebook, search for the app in the Chrome Web Store or go directly to the GlobalProtect app page.
