Block logging in to consumer accounts

Block adding consumer gmail accounts after logging on. Controlling the chat function can be done within the domain is easy to regulate, but when users are able to add an account after login they are able to use the consumer chat and hangouts during school time.

    Thanks for providing feedback on new feature suggestions. While we don’t have it as a specific feature, you can accomplish this by adding the following sites to your custom blacklist:

    accounts.google.com/Logout
    accounts.youtube.com/accounts/Logout2
    accounts.google.com/AddSession

    Please keep in mind that if you have Google.com added to your Whitelist this workaround will not work.

    Hope this helps!

        Simply adding the 3 URLs that Cody mentioned does NOT work. While it will prevent multiple sign in, students can still successfully sign out of their G Suite account and sign in with a consumer account.

        As far as I can tell, the method mentioned by Aaron Maricic in the comments is the only way to do this. I don't know if it's possible for GoGuardian to act as a proxy as laid out in the Google Help doc, but I think that would have to be the way to do this.

        Travis' suggestion might be a usable workaround. Chrome Extensions have the ability to modify webpages, so this could theoretically be done if GoGuardian could allow each domain to configure the username form field to end in the @domain.com for the customer domain. It would have to update on each keypress, but I guess it could work.

        At any rate, if GoGuardian could do this, I would love to see it happen.

        You can block consumer gmail accounts by adding the switch accounts page to your blocked pages in the admin console without using GoGuardian at all.
