So recently I was using Firefox and wanted to change a setting and went into settings of the browser and saw a strange line of text in settings. it Read:
“Your Browser is being managed by your Organization”
I have been around Firefox countless times and could tell it was not a normal message. On further Investigation I did the same to Google Chrome and went to settings and found it had the same message in settings as well.
This guide will show you on Windows 10 or similar Windows PC how to fix the Your Browser is being managed by your Organization message. So continue reading.
What is this Message?
This is a Bug it seems in some cases for Google Chrome and other browsers such as Firefox. It has even been described as malware in others that causes this so best to be on the safe side.
The message and feature is normal for those who use remote desktop for work (Work at Home) or in a company setting this may be normal as admins can administer policies and the way the browser behave.
If this is your personal computer then there is no way a third party or someone else should be administering your browser.

The you simply need to in registry editor as above browse to :

Right away I advise that after the above and the message is gone from your browser settings go ahead and update your Antivirus. Scan your PC and be careful of websites you visit.
A good Antivirus with a Firewall is recommended and a good pop-up blocker and Ad blocker for sites you dont totally trustr.
