Google Chrome Blocks Sideloading Extensions
Google seems to be upping its security game with the last Google Chrome update. The search behemoth is now closing doors on installing applications from sources other than the chrome store. This is a step forward for the popular browser in closing possible security holes in the application stemming from the practice of installing applications from third party extensions. This move was promised last November by Google.
If you’re one of them that have been side loading applications and extensions on to your Google Chrome, you’ll start seeing these extensions being auto disabled by Google Chrome and will only have the option to update once the extension or application enters the Chrome Store officially.
