PeopleGlass is a lightweight tool that enables lightning-quick editing and updating of Salesforce records, all within an easy-to-use interface. The best part? Getting started only takes a few clicks.

Whether you prefer to use the PeopleGlass web application or Chrome extension, the below information is everything you need to know to get started.


Make sure you have a valid Salesforce User License with API access. PeopleGlass works by authenticating into your Salesforce environment, so a license is required to establish that connection. Don't currently have a Salesforce license? No problem! Contact your IT team to receive a license or upgrade.

Chrome Extension Installation

1. Navigate to the PeopleGlass Chrome extension web store page.

2. Click Add to Chrome. Please note, PeopleGlass will override any existing new tab extensions upon installation.

3. You will see a pop-up that says "Did you mean to change this page?" Click Keep it to ensure PeopleGlass continues to open as designed.

4. Authenticate into the desired Salesforce environment using your Salesforce account credentials. Please see the steps outlined above in the Web Application Installation section for more details.

5. Success!

Chrome Extension Default Tab Setting

When using the Chrome extension, by default, the application will populate on any new tabs opened.

Configuring the list of force-installed apps and extensions

Supported on:

  • Google Chrome (Linux, Mac, Windows) since version 9

  • Google ChromeOS (Google ChromeOS) since version 11

Setting the policy specifies a list of apps and extensions that install silently, without user interaction, and which users can't uninstall or turn off. Permissions are granted implicitly, including for the enterprise.deviceAttributes and enterprise.platformKeys extension APIs. (These 2 APIs aren't available to apps and extensions that aren't force-installed.)

Leaving the policy unset means no apps or extensions are autoinstalled, and users can uninstall any app or extension in Google Chrome.

This policy supersedes ExtensionInstallBlocklist policy. If a previously force-installed app or extension is removed from this list, Google Chrome automatically uninstalls it.

The source code of any extension may be altered by users through developer tools, potentially rendering the extension dysfunctional. If this is a concern, set the DeveloperToolsDisabled policy.

Each list item of the policy is a string that contains an extension ID and, optionally, an update URL separated by a semicolon (;). The extension ID is the 32-letter string found, for example, on chrome://extensions when in Developer mode. If specified, the update URL should point to an Update Manifest XML document ( ). The update URL should use one of the following schemes: http, https or file. By default, the Chrome Web Store's update URL is used. The update URL set in this policy is only used for the initial installation; subsequent updates of the extension use the update URL in the extension's manifest. The update url for subsequent updates can be overridden using the ExtensionSettings policy, see

On Microsoft® Windows® instances, apps and extensions from outside the Chrome Web Store can only be forced installed if the instance is joined to a Microsoft® Active Directory® domain, joined to Microsoft® Azure® Active Directory® or enrolled in Chrome Browser Cloud Management.

On macOS instances, apps and extensions from outside the Chrome Web Store can only be force installed if the instance is managed via MDM, joined to a domain via MCX or enrolled in Chrome Browser Cloud Management.

Note: This policy doesn't apply to Incognito mode. Read about hosting extensions ( ).

Supported features:

  • Dynamic Policy Refresh : Yes

  • Per Profile : Yes

Note for Google ChromeOS devices supporting Android apps:

Android apps can be force-installed from the Google Admin console using Google Play. They do not use this policy.

This policy is part of the Extensions atomic policy group.

Removing PeopleGlass

1. If using the PeopleGlass extension, start by typing chrome://extensions into your Chrome address bar.

2. Locate the PeopleGlass extension in this list of installed Chrome extensions, and click Remove.
