Extension Neutralizing

When you view your Chrome Extensions page, each browser extension will display as on, off, or neutralized.

  • On - these are extensions that you installed on your browser that are actively running.
  • Off - these are extensions that you installed on your browser, but you've turned them off, meaning that they are not actively running.
  • Neutralized - these are extensions that you installed on your browser, but Guardio has turned them off because they pose a threat to your security. You can also see a list of extensions Guardio neutralized on your Guardio Dashboard.

Both "off" and "neutralized" indicate that the extension is not actively running within your browser. The only difference is who or what entity prevented the extension from operating. This protects you from all ill effects of malicious browser extensions as they can no longer access your browser or settings.
