A quick summary from the article of steps to take in regards to browser extensions that can be installed for Chrome and other similar Web browsers:
- Don’t install software that you cannot read and asks for intrusive permissions.
- If something seems off, it probably is. Evaluate what might cause your user journey to change.
- Periodically evaluate what extensions you have on your browser — remove those you don’t use anymore.
- If you have an extension on your browser that you use, seek an open-source version/alternative or disable automatic updates from the Chrome store — make sure you audit the code or find someone reliable and trustworthy to.
