Installing extensions for Chrome from third-party sources will soon become impossible

14 June 2018
It's no secret that numerous browser extensions can be both useful and malicious. For this reason, the developers of Google Chrome decided to protect users from possible risks. For this purpose, they decided to remove support for third-party extensions from the browser.Of course, it doesn't mean that Google Chrome won't be able to use extensions. The thing is that since June 12, you can install them only from the official Chrome Web Store. However, it's worth noting that we are only talking about new extensions. If you try to install them from the developer's site or another source, users will be redirected to the official store. As for existing extensions, the new rules will only take effect on September 12. In December, the ability to use third-party extensions will disappear completely with the release of version 71 of the Chrome browser.
