    If you are a Google Chrome user on a Windows machine, you’ll soon have to download all your Chrome extensions through the Chrome Web Store. In order to reduce Chrome malicious extensions, Google decided to block all extensions from external sources starting this January. Erik Kay,Google’s engineering Director, explained in a blog post that many Windows users were complaining that their settings were being altered without their approval. This problems are found when user download extension hosted outside the Chrome Web Store.

    To reduce the  malicious extensions from end users, developers will be required to host all their extensions on the Chrome Web Store. Google recommends developers to migrate all their extensions to its Web Store as soon as possible. This will only affect Windows users, this policy will not affect users using other OS other than Windows.
