For example, school administrators have the right to change their administrator passwords. This means if you bought your Chromebook online, there is no way you could bypass this administrator without his/her permission.

Chrome OS is a secure and flexible operating system. It comes with multiple user accounts, each account can allocate more space of memory/disk to its profile. There are two types of user-profiles in Chrome OS namely Admin and Guest. Guest users cannot do any administrative task and it’s just for temporary use of the device by another user. Admin users can do anything on the device including resetting it or wiping out its data from anywhere like resetting the chrome browser or file system. Resetting enables the use of Chromebook without administrator passwords and control.
