Pluckeye addon/extension easily disabled

Hi,

i have been using Pluckeye for a few months on my macbook air, but only noticed now that nothing prevents me from just disabling the addon/extension in firefox esr or even on chrome.

How can i prevent the disabling/removing of the pluckeye addon/extension ?
I did a pluckeye factory reset, but that didn't help.

Also i installed pluckeye, but i don't have like an application for it on the launchpad for instance, instead everything seems linked to the actual extension/addon that i have to install on each browser, is that normal ? it seems pretty vulnerable to being bypassed.

Thank you in advance for your help.

It sounds like you aren't using level 2.  Is Safari blocked?

Re: Pluckeye addon/extension easily disabled

indeed level 2 is not applied, as Safari is still available.

i have selected level 2 and even nhb in the extension, and also did it in the terminal. i tried the pluck repair too.

It used to work fine so it is definetly something that i have changed somehow.
I won't say more as i don't want to reveal a bypass.

Anyways i will probably switch to linux/windows since pluckeye won't be available on the next mac os, so that will probably solve that.

Thank you for your answer anyway, it's much appreciated

You might want to read the page very carefully.  It is unfortunate that Apple's dialogs are so difficult to navigate in this area.
