Fill out the privacy fields

Published on

The privacy tab for an extension lets you state what the extension is for and list/justify its permissions. Providing accurate information in these fields helps us review your extension as quickly as possible.

State the extension's purpose #

The Extension Quality Guidelines state that an extension must have a single purpose that is narrow and easy to understand. Make sure that this field clearly communicates this purpose for your extension.

Single purpose description Fill out this field to help the reviewers understand the focus of your extension.

List and justify any permissions #

Your extension should request the minimum permissions consistent with the purpose of the extension. Requesting broader permissions than necessary may cause your extension to be rejected.

Permissions list This section contains a list of permissions that your extension uses (as declared in your manifest), with a field for you to state the justification for each permission. Fill out these fields to tell the reviewers why your extension needs to use each permission. If there are permissions listed here that you don't require, remove them from your manifest before continuing.

Declare any remote code #

Your extension should avoid using remote code except where absolutely necessary. Extensions that use remote code will need extra scrutiny, resulting in longer review times. Extensions that call remote code and do not declare and justify it using the field shown above will be rejected.

Remote Code Use this field to tell reviewers whether your extension executes remote code and, if so, why this is necessary. If your extension doesn't need to execute remote code, make sure that it does not and select "No, I am not using remote code."
