Hello, my Google Chrome has a new policy that's called ExtensionInstallForcelist, I have tried everything from going into my terminal, contacting Apple Support, going into all of my library folders, uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, and I can not get it to go away. Please help!

Hello,
Follow these steps:
  1. Quit Google Chrome, then open a Terminal window. To do this, go to Finder > Go > Utilities > Terminal
  2. Enter the following commands, pressing enter after each line:
    • defaults write com.google.Chrome HomepageIsNewTabPage -bool false
    • defaults write com.google.Chrome NewTabPageLocation -string “https://www.google.com/”
    • defaults write com.google.Chrome HomepageLocation -string “https://www.google.com/”
    • defaults delete com.google.Chrome DefaultSearchProviderSearchURL
    • defaults delete com.google.Chrome DefaultSearchProviderNewTabURL
    • defaults delete com.google.Chrome DefaultSearchProviderName
    • defaults delete com.google.Chrome ExtensionInstallSources
  3. After running these commands, quit Chrome if you haven’t already done so, then launch it again and check chrome://policy to see if the same keys are still present (you may need to click the “Reload policies” button for changes to show up).

Hi, it says com.google.Chrome can't be found

I'm having the same issue. Tried all the steps. Still see managed by your organization and still see the ExtensionInstallForcelist on the chrome policies. Please advise.
Yeah I’m still trying to get rid of it also. Feels like I’ve tried everything.
