Chrome Incoginito Mode
Hi, When my childrens using Chrome goes to Incognito mode to see some * videos and ** then look your message "Yay" "META CERT"and the "icon" But they recognize the icon and the name, ahaaa.
this is not very difficult, go to Extension / Meta Cert and uncheck " Permit in incognito mode" and after that.. , , chat, file sharing, ,**, in the kitchen...etc.
I do not think that this application ensures nothing, at least in Chrome.
hiding the icon and redirecting to another page that is not Meta Cert could be an idea. (the logo there gives me a great track...)
Hi, It’s Paul from MetaCert,
I apologize for taking so long to reply to this conversation. It got lost for some reason – sorry.
You are right about the block page and the logo. You can hide our shield by using right-click and then select “hide button”.
As @Joseph says, Google has finally realized the importance of user accounts so parental controls can be better managed.
As soon as Google updates Chrome it will be possible to protect your extension password.
Thanks everyone for your feedback and again, I’m sorry for taking so long to reply.
I don't think you saw my response to this so I'll write it here. We would love nothing more than to protect the extension from being removed - but I'm afraid there is nothing we can do - it's a technical limitation of Google. As soon as it's technically possible we will do our very best to implement the solution.
Until then, you could try out our DNS service as a backup. It's $2.95 per month but free for 14 days and if after that you are unhappy, I will give you a full refund.

How do I uninstall this from Chrome
Thanks Paul, unless Google is going to do more than is mentioned here the new users account will only work in a Chromebook properly. In fact I do not even see the point of this from Google if the user can just browse is a different profile other than the one set up for them - actually it's pointless.. Google is a joke
Or put an option to put password before it can be removed in the extension bar

if you use the Beta version of chrome you have the option to create "Managed Users" this allows you to create a locked down profile for your kids or employees and manage them from a parent/manger account. in this configuration the MetaCert extension can not be disabled.
I do not see a reply to this from Meta Cert, So I guess no imminent solution is coming?
To be honest this question is fundamental to the Chrome extensions usefulness for anyone above the age of probably 6-7. If it can be removed so easily, what is it's function/usefulness? (it has very limited use) I agree though that it is the best product out there when it is installed. Meta Cert..! CEO Paul...!!! Are there any plans or possible developments coming from Chrome that you are aware of that will allow a password protect on extensions? This is an urgent need for many Google users. Appears to me Google are very slow to make there products Child friendly/**** proof..
