This DNA Agent extension for Chrome OS is for use with NetSupport DNA (version 4.50 and above), a single, low-cost solution delivering IT Asset Management, Classroom Instruction, Internet Safety and more – with dedicated versions available for schools and corporate enterprises. 

The extension supports NetSupport DNA’s core desktop management capabilities. When launched within a Chrome Browser, it will interrogate the Chrome OS device to gather key system inventory details and monitor online activity. The data collected is dynamically sent to your local NetSupport DNA Server and is then available for reporting within the NetSupport DNA Management Console. 

Supported Features:

Real-time Monitoring - An Admin or Teacher via the Console can view a real-time summary of all Chrome OS devices. Selected devices can be viewed either in a detailed list view or via real-time thumbnails of each device screen.

Internet Metering - A summary of Internet activity via the extension is recorded, including start and finish times for each URL visited and the active time spent on a page. 

Safeguarding Keyword Monitoring (Education version) – This tool helps schools protect students from being exposed to inappropriate online content. It alerts staff when students type or search for any terms that match with those in the DNA keyword database, providing safeguarding and internet safety indicators for self-harm, bullying, radicalisation, Child Sexual exploitation - and much more.

Safeguarding Report a Concern (Education version) - Students can report concerns directly and discreetly to nominated school staff.

Hardware Inventory - When the Chrome Browser is launched on a device, an inventory is dynamically sent to the NetSupport DNA Server.

Risk impact

NetSupport DNA Agent requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install NetSupport DNA Agent if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

NetSupport DNA Agent has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
