Now Chrome extensions have to answer for themselves

Share on

From January next year, Google will require extensions to Chrome to explain what user data is used for.

From next year, developers will have to reveal what they do with your data, if not warn against use

This is how Chrome will inform you about what extensions do.
You would think something so basic was already in place, but it is not.

At the same time, the creators of the extensions must promise not to sell data to third parties or use user information for anything other than the product, including the use of the data for credit checks and loans.

In order for everything to be ready in January, developers can already now submit information about what is collected, ie the text that will be shown to users - the alerts will be in place on 18 January 2021.

If the developers do not have a text ready by this date, the page will be marked with a notice.
