Because Chromebooks run primarily on the Chrome browser rather than on installed programs, their security is a bit different from the typical PC. This means that typical Windows or iOS security programs do not apply to them. Instead, the Chromebook Security Extension (CSE) provides security for users within the browser itself. CSE helps to protect users from malware and in the case of schools, content that is prohibited by the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
