Upon launching Google Chrome a little pop up dialogue box appears in the top right hand corner of the browser which states:
The extension "Chrome Security Component" has been added.
It gives me the options to press OK or Details (I have not pressed OK), but upon pressing Details a new tab opens with my Chrome extensions.
There is an extension called Chrome Security Component 1.0 with a tick enabled to the right.
The writing immediately below its name says:
Critical Security Update for Firefox
There are 2 little boxes:
- Allow incognito
- Allow access to URLs
Neither boxes are ticked.
To my knowledge I have not downloaded this extension from Chrome Web Store and would like advice?
Has anyone else come across this, it doesn't sound right especially the bit about it being a critical security update for Firefox!
Can Google Chrome add extensions automatically if they are for security reasons?
(This is also something that has appeared very recently in the last few times of launching Chrome, that's why I am sure I didn't download it as an extension)
