Recently I noticed a message in chrome saying it was being managed by my organization. This didn't make any sense, so I checked and I saw that there is a policy causing this called ExtensionInstallForcelist. This policy is seems like its installing an extension with the ID "oephopgkjmclikolnpeioedlggnamdkk" which does not even show up on the chrome extension store, and I don’t actually see in my extension list. I've been unable to delete this policy through the terminal either, as whenever I try to I receive an error that domain "com.google.chrome" cannot be found. I would like to get rid of the policy and the managed by organization method. Can anyone help?

Hello. Run Malwarebytes for Mac. Open Chrome and in the address bar type chrome: // policy. What does it show?

On Finder clic on Go to Folder, type /Library/LaunchAgents. What it is inside of this folder? Do the same for ~/Library/LaunchAgents.

Do you have Mackeeper installed?
