Extension Defender for Chrome

chromeextdefenderThe more technology evolves, the more malware and adware seems to insert itself. Recently it was released that even a lot of Google Chrome extensions have adware in them to track your information. Et tu Chrome? But thanks to the release of a new Google Chrome extension called Extension Defender, you can scan your installed extensions for ones that pose a threat for adware.

One you have Extension Defender installed, just click on it and it will do a scan of your Chrome browser extensions and let you know if you have any one of the ones posing a threat for adware.

While this seems like overkill, I for one installed it just to be safe, and it has worked very well. Personally this doesn’t surprise me as it shows more and more how the Google Chrome browser is evolving more into its own operating system, within an operating system.
