How to authenticate Read&Write for Google Chrome with an Office 365 account

If you have an Office 365 account and would like to use our Read&Write for Google Chrome extension, this article will show you how to add the extensions and sign in with your account.

Adding the Extensions


  1. Open the Google Chrome browser 

  1. Make sure you are not signed into Chrome with your personal Gmail. Copy and paste chrome://settings into your URL bar and check to see if you are syncing with any email.


  1. Add the Read&Write and Screenshot Reader extensions

  2. When adding an extension when you are not signed into Chrome, it will ask you to “Turn on sync”. You can close that popup because you will be authenticating with an Office 365 account.
