Installation instructions for AntiCaptcha plugin for Google Chrome, Opera and Microsoft Edge browsers in CRX format with screenshots

This is one of the two possible install options for Chrome. On the page Chrome, Opera and Edge browsers you can read about all the variants and their benefits and flaws.

On this page you'll find a detailed tutorial of how to manually install AntiCaptcha plugin for your browser from CRX file.

For an extension installation please follow instructions below:

0) Attention for Windows and MasOs users! Due to Google Chrome extension policy for normal installation and operation you need set following directives ExtensionInstallWhitelist and ExtensionInstallSources into browser policy options.

Please set values lncaoejhfdpcafpkkcddpjnhnodcajfg for ExtensionInstallWhitelist and* for ExtensionInstallSources respectively.

For Mac users: please use Chromium instead.

For Linux users: it should work without these directives.

For Windows users we created a specail REG file which you need to download, run and accept a change request and then restart the browser. This file does everything automatically by writing values above to the registry.

After correct registration you can see these directives in the browser Policies page chrome://policy/ .
You'll also see the sign Your browser is managed by your organization on some service pages of the browser. Don't pay attention to it.

For removing directives from registry please download and run a REG file for registry clearing from AntiCaptcha plugin records. Attention! After this operation an installed plugin will be disabled and it won't be able to be installed again.

You need to restart the browser for any the changes to take effect.

You can see if you set up these directives correctly by checking the chrome://policy/ service web page:
