      I have the same problem with my Pixel. Touch events disabled, chromebook restarted, disable touch events verified, and my toddler can still touch every ad or video while I’m trying to read.

        Same Here! My chromebook screen is broken, so it will randomly start acting as if a thousand fingers are on the screen. i have tried with chrome flags, still acts up every now and then
