Google has made several new announcements for its Chrome Web Store that aims at making Chrome extensions more secure and transparent to its users.

Over a couple of years, we have seen a significant rise in malicious extensions that appear to offer useful functionalities, while running hidden malicious scripts in the background without the user's knowledge.

However, the best part is that Google is aware of the issues and has proactively been working to change the way its Chrome web browser handles extensions.


Earlier this year, Google banned extensions using cryptocurrency mining scripts and then in June, the company also disabled inline installation of Chrome extensions completely. The company has also been using machine learning technologies to detect and block malicious extensions.
