Configure extension installation blacklist

Allows you to specify which extensions the users can NOT install. Extensions already installed will be disabled if blacklisted, without a way for the user to enable them. Once an extension disabled due to the blacklist is removed from it, it will automatically get re-enabled.

A blacklist value of '*' means all extensions are blacklisted unless they are explicitly listed in the whitelist.

If this policy is left not set the user can install any extension in Google Chrome.

Example value:

extension_id1
extension_id2

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family

Extension IDs the user should be prevented from installing (or * for all)

Registry HiveHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_CURRENT_USER
