How to use microsoft defender as parental control

I have already been successful in creating a family account and registering the necessary devices with Microsoft Defender.

However:

 1) Microsoft defender only works in Explorer
 2) other documentation and tutorials points to chrome extensions.  However, extensions can be turned off as easily as they are turned on. 

Where do I go from here?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your question.

    I believe you can work out on preventing of Google extension being uninstalled or disabled by user.

    Open Registry Editor

    Access Policies key

    Create Google key

    Create Chrome key

    Add ExtensionInstallForcelist key under Chrome key

    Create a String value and rename it as 1

    Open Google Chrome

    Open Extensions manager page of Chrome

    Copy an extension ID

    Double-click on the String value that you created

    Paste extension ID in the Value data field

    Save & Relaunch the Google Chrome browser.
