    If you want to use your Chromebook without a Google Account, It is possible to log in to your Chromebook as a “guest”. As a guest user you have access to the Chrome-browser, but it is not possible to gain access to the cloud. This means you can not edit documents or use other applications on your Chromebook.
    For optimal use of your Chromebook it is important you create a Google Account. You need a Google Account to gain access to the cloud. With your Google Account you create a user profile on your Chromebook and you are able to easily install applications like Google Drive. Furthermore, you can access your cloud-saved documents from every device and location. In the event your Chromebook is out of order or lost, you can log in to your Google Account from another device and resume what you were working on.
    To become the “owner” of your Chromebook it is necessary to create a Google Account. The account with the owner rights is the only account with which you can change certain settings of your Chromebook. The Google Account with which you first sign on will be set as the “owner” account of your Chromebook.

    If you want to bypass the Google account that is already setup on your Chromebook, you can reset it to factory settings, All data stored on your Chromebook will be lost.
    You can also reset your Chromebook to its original factory state from the sign-in screen by pressing Shift + Ctrl + Alt + R and clicking Restart.
