Cross-origin opener policy

Published on

The cross_origin_opener_policy manifest key lets extensions specify a value for the Cross-Origin-Opener-Policy (COOP) response header for requests to the extension's origin. This includes the extension's background context (service worker or background page), popup, options page, tabs that are open to an extension resource, etc.

Together with cross_origin_embedder_policy, this key allows extensions opt into cross-origin isolation.

Manifest declaration

This key was introduced in Chrome 93.

The cross_origin_opener_policy manifest key takes an object. This object should only contain one property named value with a string value. Chrome uses this string as the value of the Cross-Origin-Opener-Policy header when serving resources from the extension's origin. For example:

{
...
"cross_origin_opener_policy": {
"value": "same-origin"
},
...
}

See Cross-origin isolation overview for more information about this feature.
