Legacy Extensions

Overview

This article will instruct you on how to install the legacy VirtualShield extension inside of your web browser.

It doesn't matter which device you are using. The extensions will work on computers, cell phones, tablets, and more. However, we strongly recommend installing our official desktop/mobile application or one of our Legacy apps instead.

The extensions only protect what's inside of your browser. They will not protect the other programs running on your device. To protect all of your online activity, our desktop/mobile app is recommended.

Common Questions

?
My web browser is not listed above, what can I do?
If you're using a Chromium-based browser like Microsoft Edge, Brave, or Vivaldi, then it is likely you can still install our Google Chrome extension. If you need any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.
?
Can I install the app and the browser extension at the same time?
You can, however it is not required. Our official desktop/mobile application will protect all of your browsers at the same time, and all of the other programs on your device.
