Chrome: The same open-source software company that wants to keep crappy advertising out of your browser also wants to keep “fake news” from enriching your life.

How to Tell Legit Chrome Extensions From Malware

We all fall victim to the dangerous belief that if an app or extension is listed in an official repository—be it the App Store, Google Play, the Microsoft Store, Mozilla’s Add-Ons directory, et cetera—it must be legitimate.
