Windows Accounts Google Chrome Extension

Copper Contributor

Hi,

I am unsure if it is the right platform to ask this question, Please move the question to the right place if it's not. 
Our Azure AD team recently installed the following extension on Google Chrome for Windows machines.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/windows-accounts/ppnbnpeolgkicgegkbkbjmhlideopiji

Around 10 million installation mention on Google for this extension. and it was working fine until last week our security team asked us to uninstall the extension from all the machines as they are suspecting that extension is not legit. I would like to ask if this extension is really from Microsoft or a third party as I can see the developer email is from Microsoft.com, any thoughts or comments?

 

Thanks,

The add-on is not nescassary any longer this was the old way for sso.
You can use admx template for chrome and set: Allow automatic sign-in to Microsoft® cloud identity providers

@JimmyWork can you please provide an URL to any Microsoft documentation that describes that the Windows Account extension for Chrome is no longer required to meet Entra ID Conditional Access Policy requirements for device compliance? I have been unable to locate anything indicating as such so far. I would much appreciate it!

The OP tagged SSO.
So this will give you SSO like the extension did before.

"For Chrome support in Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) or later, install the Windows Accounts extension or enable Chrome's CloudAPAuthEnabled"
