GoGuardian is an education-focused software-as-a-service provider that offers Chromebook management and web filtering in schools, and is used primarily by district administrators.

Its feature set includes Chromebook filtering, monitoring, and management, as well as usage analytics, activity flagging, and theft recovery for any device running the Chrome Operating System (Chrome OS).

GoGuardian additionally offers filtering functionality for third-party tools such as YouTube.

These services enable school administrators to monitor student activity online, philtre potentially harmful or distracting content, and recover lost or stolen devices.

The goal of the tool is to help keep students on-task and away from inappropriate content.

In January 2016, GoGuardian announced the launch of Google Classroom Integration for GoGuardian for Teachers.

In January 2016, two of the company's co-founders, Aza Steel and Advait Shinde, were named to *Forbes * magazine's annual "30 Under 30" list in the Education category.
