If Chrome has added an extension with the label “Installed by Enterprise Policy”, then your browser is most likely infected by a browser hacker or adware. The company’s installation policy was created by Google to help developers, but cybercriminals use this type of policy to install malicious extensions on Google Chrome. The reason they do this is that extensions are managed “Installed by Enterprise Policy” and cannot be deleted or disabled via Chrome page extensions.
Some Chrome extensions installed by Corporate Policy also include adware (also known as adware) that can display unsolicited ads or collect your privacy information that can be sold to third parties. These unsolicited ads can be presented as pop-under, pop-ups, text ads, video ads, text links or banners, or even massive full-page ads. Most of these Chrome extensions installed by Corporate Policy are created only to display unwanted advertising, but some of them are a form of spyware that is often used to track users in order to collect a variety of user information.
