Two Chrome Extensions Merged into One: Transitioning from "Anywhere Access" Chrome Extension to "ReadCube Papers / Anywhere Access" Chrome Extension

With an increasing number of users using both our ReadCube Papers and Anywhere Access functionality, we decided to simplify things for everyone and merge the previously separate extensions into one. 

While most users are on the primary ReadCube Papers Browser Extension, some may still be using the outdated Anywhere Access version. Not to worry though - It's very easy to get on the primary extension. We encourage you to make this transition because as of August 1, 2019, we will no longer be actively updating the Anywhere Access extension. That means that you will miss out on new features, fixes, and overall improvements.

Steps for making the switch:

1. Go to the top menu of your browser and select Window > Extensions and remove Anywhere Access.

Alternatively, you can also right-click on the Anywhere Access extension icon in your browser bar and click on the option to Remove from Chrome

Removing the legacy extension will have no impact on your account, library or other settings. Once you log-in during the next step, everything will be reconnected. 

2. Once the old one has been removed, go to the ReadCube Papers Browser Extension and add it to Chrome. Click on the newly added extension in your browser bar to login with your same credentials as before and you'll be all set to go!
