How to install Chrome extensions on Android

Installing extensions on Chrome for Android is not officially allowed. However, there are alternative browsers that are capable of installing and running them. One of the most popular is Kiwi. If you need to install a Chrome extension on your device, this is the best option.

First, download Kiwi on your device. Use the link on this page to get its APK quickly and safely. As soon as you run it, you will notice that its interface is very similar to Chrome. Tap on the three dots to open the main menu.
