Google has announced a crackdown on all cryptocurrency mining extensions that have been present on its Chrome internet browser's extensions store. Late yesterday, James Wagner, Google's Extensions Platform Product Manager for Chrome stated in a blog post that the move comes after an overwhelming majority of these extensions and plugins have failed to comply with the requisite privacy restrictions that have been put in place to prevent potentially risky data breaches. However, extensions that work in blockchain-related actions and are not related to cryptocurrency mining will be permitted to remain on Chrome's Web Store.
