Cannot sucessfully block Google Sync/Sign-in over GPO

Hi,

I thought that I have successfully disabled our users from signing into Chrome with google accounts but this seems not to be the case. They just receive a warning:

But they are able to sign-in without a problem.

What am I missing?

EDIT: The settings are on the COMPUTER side!

Cheers!

I have managed to solve this on my own:

an additional regkey is needed:

After GPO, run gpupdate on the client machine and start Chrome. if the sync tab is still there:

Just log off and logon. User hast to be in the same OU where GPO is located.
