Yes and no.

Yes, because it could detect forms of attack (especially via the Cloud) and no, because Kaspersky already has very good Web protection on its antivirus.

Personally, I don't use the extension.
Does the extension encrypt data entered on websites? I have it enabled on my family's systems solely for this reason. Other features in Kaspersky, which the extension supports, I don't use and have disabled. I asked @harlan4096 if the extension encrypts data input on websites (without using the on-screen keyboard) in a thread. He was unsure, but I kept the extension enabled because of the protection details mentioned in the help files.
"Secure data input on websites. The extension connects the app and the browser for transferring data entered from the on-screen and regular keyboards. The Secure Data Input feature only works if the Kaspersky Protection extension is enabled."

I talked with @harlan4096 about the extension's topic.
