Block Apps or Extensions
Some Apps and Extensions can be used to stop Highlights and other extensions from working correctly. Such Apps and Extensions need to be blocked. Hapara strongly recommends blocking the following extensions:
- Chrome Apps and Extensions Developer Tool
- ChromeVox - Alternatively, you can navigate to Device Management > Chrome Management > User Settings and select "Turn off accessibility settings on sign-in screen upon logout"
Apps and Extensions can be blocked with either a blacklist (allow all except a list of specific apps/extensions) or whitelist (block all except a list of specific apps/extensions).
This can be managed under:
admin.google.com > Device Management > Chrome Management > User Settings > Apps and Extensions>Allow or Block All Apps and Extensions
The “Chrome Apps and Extensions Developer Tool” is known to be potentially disruptive to the Highlights extension. Once the blacklist is enabled (see above) this app can be added to the blacklist by following the steps below:
1. At Allowed Apps and Extensions and click Manage
2. Click Chrome Web Store
3. Search for the app in the Store by typing Chrome Apps in the search box and pressing the Enter key
4. Choose to Add the Chrome Apps and Extensions Developer Tool
5. Click Save
The number of "blocked" apps or extensions should have incremented.
6. Be sure to SAVE CHANGES in the lower right-hand corner.
The above example shows how to use a blacklist, but this could also be achieved by blocking all the apps extensions except the ones that you specify.
