Manage Extensions in Chrome

Some specific information and settings are accessible via the extension's management page:

  • Click the Extensions button on the Google Chrome toolbar (next to your profile avatar).

  • In the expanded menu, click Manage Extensions.

  • Type Fiddler Jam in the search bar or directly select the Fiddler Jam extension.

  • Click on the Details button.

On this management page, you could set Fiddler Jam site access and the option to work in incognito mode.

Site Access

The Site Access extension settings provide the option to limit the extension for a specific site. The option on click is not applicable for the Fiddler Jam extension as it does not provides an opportunity to permit access to the mandatory backend endpoints. By default, most Chrome exceptions are available on all sites (using the option On all sites).

To use Fiddler Jam on specific sites only, scroll down to Site access, select the On specific site option, and add the required endpoints:

<The URL of the specific site you will use alongside the Fiddler Jam extension>
https://api.getfiddler.com/](https://api.getfiddler.com/
https://fiddler-backend-production.s3-accelerate.amazonaws.com/

Allow in Incognito

By default, most Chrome extensions are disabled in incognito mode. To explicitly enable Fiddler Jam and debug your sites in incognito mode, follow these steps:

  1. Open the management page.

  2. Scroll down to Allow in Incognito and use the switch to enable the feature.
