Add your Chromebook to someone else's account

How to use an invite code

Last updated: March 9, 2021

Instructions

  1. Click here to go to the Truple app in the Chrome Web Store

  2. Click the Add to Chrome button

  3. Click Add Extension

  4. Click the Truple icon in the top right-hand corner of the chrome browser

    If you can't see the Truple icon, you need to tell Chrome to show it clicking the two buttons shown below.

  5. Click Get Started

  6. Login with your Truple account (create an account but do not subscribe)

    (if this doesn't work, update your Chrome OS to version 83+. Google broke the login system in Chrome OS v81--see announcements below)

  7. Answer Another Account to the question asking Which account would you like to add this device to?

  8. Enter in the account code and invite code given to you. (keep in mind the invite codes do expire)

  9. Grant the permissions**

  10. Hide the screen capture notification**

  11. Click the 3 vertical dot menu in the top right-hand corner, then click on Settings

  12. Click Sync and Google services

  13. Click Manage what you sync

  14. Disable History (If you don't do this, you may get false positives about the app being disabled)

  15. Click Extensions on the left side menu

  16. Scroll down and find Truple, then click on Details

  17. Scroll down then grant Truple the permission to work in incognito. (If this permission is removed, it'll trigger a tamper alert)

  18. Grant the screencast permission again as the application has to relaunch in order to have permission to run in incognito mode.

** You'll be required to grant this permission each time the chromebook is turned off then back on. If it occurs more frequently for you, let us know at support@truple.io so we can investigate if there are differences among chromebooks we need to account for. Repeatedly rejecting or ignoring will cause a tamper alert to be sent.
