The next section of Google Admin console best practices for businesses is Device settings. This is where you can control the settings of the Chrome devices within your domain. To navigate to Device settings from the Admin console homepage click on Devices > Chrome Devices. Then click the dropdown that says Devices and click Settings. Then click Device settings.
Forced re-enrollment ties the device to your domain no matter what. By default, this is set to “Force device to re-enroll into this domain after wiping”. To turn this off, select “Device is not forced to re-enroll after wiping”. This prevents employees from wiping the device and enrolling it into a new domain.
