Google Chrome Could Soon Block Mature Extensions on Child Accounts
Google Chrome browser could soon receive new filters that would technically block the installation of extensions and themes rated as “mature” when child accounts are used.
The discovery made by ChromeStory indicates that the browser will also prevent the installation of mature add-ons in case of student accounts, albeit for the time being, no further specifics are available.
“Child users can never load and enable mature extensions and themes after this CL, even with parental approval. There’s no way to ask for parental approval in the first place. The blocking only works for extensions and themes marked Mature in Chrome Web Store (CWS). Note that child users can still see mature extension detail pages in CWS,” a code change in the Chromium Gerrit reveals, as per the cited source.
