Chrome and Chrome OS
We support the Google Chrome OS platforms below that still receive security updates.
This browser extension is primarily designed for Chromebook and monitors all activity within Google Chrome. This extension is not necessary if you're using Mac, Windows, or Linux. We instead recommend using the versions specifically designed for those products.
We work hard to maintain compatibility with all major Linux versions and releases. Yet, due to the massive number of builds, variants, and user-modifications within various Linux distributions, we cannot guarantee universal compatibility with every Linux version, release, and modification. It simply isn't possible.
While that disclaimer may sound ominous, thankfully, it's rarely a concern due to excellent cross-distribution compatibility. As our developers and customers discover reproducible anomalies with specific Linux distributions running Accountable2You, we document those findings and workarounds here.
