Google Removes Mining Extensions
April 4, 2018
Google has declared to impose ban on adding mining extensions to Chrome Web Store. This being done Google will remove all similar extensions existing in the store.
The measure was taken due to numerous malwares that appeared to be useful yet had integrated scripts for mining. They exploited computing capacities of users who installed these extensions for illicit cryptocurrency mining.
Google used to claim earlier, it adopted a number of restrictions including those for cryptocurrency, ICO, crypto exchange, wallets and mining ads.
