26th April 2023

If you’re using Clicker on a Chromebook, take a look at the image below. Does this appear when you open a Clicker App?

Yes? Then keep reading so you know how to make opening your Clicker Apps as smooth as possible!

Due to Google’s security policies, the Google account login window needs to appear every time a Clicker App is opened, and that’s classed as a ‘pop-up’. All you need to do is a small settings ‘tweak’ to allow, or ‘enable’, pop-ups, because we require the Google login for licensing.

How to enable pop-ups

Pop-ups can be enabled by clicking the “Pop-up blocked” icon on the right of the address bar and selecting “Always allow”:

If the "Pop-up blocked” icon doesn’t appear, or if you want this to apply to all users, please send your IT Support the instructions below.

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin Console ( as an administrator. On the left pane, go to Devices > Chrome > Settings > Users & browsers.

  2. Type pop-ups in the Search or add a filter field.
