Using the Chrome Web Store badge #

You can let others know that your app, extension or theme is available in the Chrome Web Store by using the "Available in the Chrome Web Store" badge on your site. You do not need pre-approval to use this badge. However, be sure that your use of the badge is consistent with the Chrome Web Store terms of service and these branding guidelines, or we may request that you modify or cease your use of the badge.

As the following images show, the badge has an optional border.

If you resize the badge, preserve the ratio of dimensions, and make sure the badge is legible and fully visible.

When using the "Available in the Chrome Web Store" badge in marketing executions or on your site, follow these rules and restrictions:

  • Don't modify the badge in any way, other than resizing.
  • Don't make the badge the primary element on your page.
  • Keep some distance between the badge and other logos and icons on your page.
  • Don't use the badge on a page that contains or displays adult content, promotes gambling, promotes violence, contains hate speech, involves the sale of tobacco or alcohol to persons under twenty-one years of age, violates other applicable laws or regulations or is otherwise objectionable.
  • Make sure that clicking the badge always links to your page in the Chrome Web Store, and that your app, extension or theme is available in the store at all times that you use the badge.
