Dangerous Chrome Extensions

 

Extensions are usually a beneficial way to customize your web browser. There are many useful extensions available such as tracking and ad blockers. Unfortunately, there are extensions available which seek to spy on you and steal your personal information.

Some extensions on Google Chrome were recently discovered to have been spying on users and stealing their data. What makes this alarming is that these were readily available from the official Chrome web store. While Google does actively monitor these extensions and has been removing any that have proven to be malicious, it is ultimately up to the installer to exercise caution. It is recommended to always do thorough research before installing.
