Anyone with a Google account can add the extensions to their browser.
Here are a few security extensions that are useful to have on your browser:
Free advertising has led marketers to crowd the Internet with advertisements. Though it is a great platform for marketing, it is overwhelming for any user to see so many ads on every page they open. With so many people advertising, it gets hard and time consuming to close some of the annoying ads when you are trying to browse. It is also a put-off to see websites cluttered with ads more than content. Adblocks help in blocking these ads and stop advertisements from appearing on the web pages you browse. This is one of the most downloaded extensions.
Web of Trust:
Internet has become a virtual world with millions of available websites and thousands popping up every day. With so many websites available, it is extremely hard to differentiate between a safe and unsafe website. Web Of Trust is more of a global community where users across the globe rate the websites they surf everyday and share their experiences. An untrustworthy website will be named ‘unsafe’ according to the traffic-light rating system. This ensures a safer surfing environment.
Click and Clean:
This Google extension helps you delete history with just the click of a button. It is not just a shortcut, but when it deletes the history, Click and Clean also checks for Malware. Not just Malware, it also deletes temporary cookies, files and caches that occupy unnecessary space. You can also watch flash videos without being connected to the Internet.
Flash is one of the most vulnerable features of the internet. Though Flash has been taken out by Adobe, there are a lot of websites still carrying Flash. You needn’t block Flash on every website you see. Instead, you can create a personal list which automatically blocks Flash on websites that are unsafe. This extension helps in blocking Flash automatically. You can load a few chosen elements on the webpage instead of everything. It helps in lessening memory usage, bringing down CPU cycles and is also an excellent substitute for AdBlock.
There are many websites, whether it is shopping or communities that require login addresses and passwords to login to their website. It is really hard to remember the login names and passwords we give for each and every website. Last Pass helps in getting your online accounts more organized by providing a universal login address and password. You can also store information required for forms like first name, last name, home address, e-mail address, etc. This offers an easier and more importantly safer browsing experience.
There might be outdated plug-ins running on your computer. Though it may not cause direct harm to your computer, your computer might be at risk over a long period of time. This extension ensures all your plug-ins are kept updated and warns when they are not secure add-ons to your browser.
These are few useful extensions that can be downloaded to your browser.
