    Hi,

    WSA doesn't work to it's full functionality in a sandboxed browser by sandboxie. Features like Identity shield and part of web threat shield like green check marks fail to work inside the sandboxed browser.

    Now Google Chrome browser has a built-in sandbox. Will WSA work to its full functionality in this browser?

    Best Wishes,
    Amit

    Since the sandbox in Chrome is inside the browser and not blocking the browser itself from communicating with WSA like Sandboxie does, I'd expect that it would work barring any other issues.

    WSA is able to monitor into Chrome's sandbox - Sandboxie limits some additional areas which is why WSA can't reach out but you can use Chrome without a problem :)

    Absolutely. Chrome is my primary browser and I use WSA. :)
