Hi all,

 

I removed Google Chrome from the WIP protected apps weeks ago but it is still protected. Is there a way to reset protection?

If I add Chrome to the exempted apps list Chrome is not protected anymore, but when I remove it from the exempted apps list the protection comes back. Seems like the "AppCompat" in the boundaries forces protection, I wasn't aware of that... @Mathieu Aït Azzouzène
