In the past few days, I consistently experienced slow website browsing.

Upon investigation, I found that an extension named “Forcepoint Endpoint for MacOS” had been installed on my Chrome browser, Interestingly, while browsing websites in the “Browser’s private mode,” there was no impact on the speed (as this extension cannot be used in private mode)

I located the extension here:

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions

Initially, I attempted to delete this extension, but the system promptly restored it.

I had to delete it once again.

Then, I used the “touch” command to create a file with the same name and used “chmod” to change the file’s permissions to 000, ensuring that no one could modify it.

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions
touch lcfhoedifcbfmfdkomchdpfapnponggf
chmod 000 lcfhoedifcbfmfdkomchdpfapnponggf

By taking these steps, I successfully eliminated interference from Forcepoint Endpoint, resulting in a significant improvement in internet speed. Of course, if you wish to make additional changes, you can explore this folder:

~/Library/Application Support/Websense Endpoint/DLP
