Installing the Chrome Browser Extension

Follow

The Chrome Browser Extension is the tool to allow you to surf the internet safely, by connecting to the provider services subscribed through your Lethean Wallet.

You have two different options to install the Extension, either through the Compiled Extension available in Chrome Webstore, or through the source available at Lethean's public repository.

 

From Compiled Extension

Go to the Chrome Webstore and click "Add to Chrome" to install the latest version of the extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lethean-proxyvpn-extensio/aigmfoeogfnljhnofglledbhhfegannp

From Source

Clone or download the source of the extension from the Official repository here: https://github.com/LetheanMovement/lethean-browser-extension

Or download the latest release (3.0.0.b2) directly from lethean.io.

 

If you download the ZIP version, extract the ZIP file to a known location. If you cloned the directory, you should already have the contents of the extension uncompressed.

 

Open up chrome browser, click the Options (three dots) at the right of the browser window, then go to "More Tools" and "Extensions".
