Hi Guys,

ChatGPT, an AI-based chatbot created by OpenAI, has become a popular target for cybercriminals. One recent scam involves a fake ChatGPT-branded Chrome browser extension that hijacks Facebook accounts and creates rogue admin accounts for malicious advertising.

The ‘Quick Access to Chat GPT’ extension, promoted through Facebook-sponsored posts, has been pulled from the Chrome Web Store after attracting 2,000 installations per day since March 3. The extension, which offers a connection to ChatGPT, secretly harvests cookies and Facebook account data through bogus Facebook applications and uses hijacked accounts to advertise the malware.

How do you stay safe?
If you have the ‘Quick Access to Chat GPT’ extension installed in Chrome, remove it immediately. If you have it already installed, your Facebook account may have been compromised, so immediately change your password and enable two-factor authentication and contact the Incognito Privacy Care Team and we can offer you additional advice.


  • Don’t install extensions from unofficial sources, including social media pages.
  • Avoid clicking on unsolicited links, especially from unknown sources.
  • Always check the reviews and ratings before installing any extension or application from Google Play Store or Chrome Web Store.
  • Keep your antivirus and anti-malware software up-to-date.
  • Be cautious of Facebook applications that ask for access to your Facebook account, especially if you don’t recognize the application.
  • Monitor your Facebook account for suspicious activities, including unexpected logins, new friends, or posts you didn’t make.
  • Use a password manager to generate and store strong and unique passwords for each account.

Please share this tip with anyone who may be affected.

All the best,
