15 top Wordle Chrome extensions

Here are our top picks for Wordle Chrome extensions. These extensions have been tested by us and seem to work as intended.

Extensions without any reviews and ratings have been marked and their privacy policy has been disclosed below depending on the information provided by the developer. Let’s get started.

1. Random Wordle

If you’re like me then Wordle has probably taken over your life. 5 letter words have become the norm and you try to solve the puzzle as soon as possible.

Sadly the daily challenge also means that there is no more Wordle to solve once you have been through the daily challenge. 

Random Wordle helps with this by replacing the daily solution with another random 5 letter word in your browser.

This way you can continue the guessing game for as long as you like and enjoy as much Wordle as you like. 

2. Wordle Cracker

Do you have trouble getting on board with Wordle? Maybe word puzzles have never been your thing and you’re just trying to change that.

Wordle Cracker can help you with all those by disclosing the daily challenge answer with a single click. This can help you get good at Wordle, analyze your guesses and improve in places you find yourself to be lacking.

While you can also use this to simply crack each daily puzzle but where would be the fun in that?

3. Wordle hints

Wordle Cracker can be a bit daunting and very close to cheating. If you are looking for something more ethical, then Wordle hints is the next best option for you.

Wordle hints help you improve your vocabulary by offering you a set of 5 letter words that you can choose to guess the daily puzzle. You will get a list of possible remaining words depending on your guess which should make it easier to solve the puzzle.

This will also help you register and learn new words which in turn will increase your vocabulary and help you get better at Wordle in no time. 

4. Wordle helper

Another Wordle assistant, this time we have Wordle Helper, an extension that will help you solve daily Wordle puzzles with ease.

Wordle Helper takes into account your current guesses, used letters, and correct letters to offer you a list of all the possible solutions.

You can then use your remaining guesses to choose words from the list, to try and solve the daily Wordle puzzle.

5. Make Wordle accessible

Accessibility features have gotten pretty good over the years to provide inclusion for challenged users around the world.

Sadly Wordle is yet to introduce support for screen readers which in turn can make it quite difficult for users with accessibility needs to solve the daily Wordle challenge.

Thanks to Make Wordle accessible we now have an extension that adds support for screen readers to Wordle. This ensures that everyone can join in on the fun and brag about their Wordle solving prowess. 

The extension has been tested with VoiceOver on macOS and JAWS on Windows. Simply install the extension above and visit Wordle and your screen reader should now be automatically supported.

If the page was already open then you might need to reload it once to get the extension up and running as intended. 

6. Wordle for Google Meet

Virtual collaborations and meetings have become the norm over the past 2 years and Google Meet is one of the go-to choices for many users.

This minimal offering from Google allows you to host instant meetings directly from your browser. Sadly, virtual meetings are not as engaging, and thus staring at your screen during a long meeting while simply consuming information can be tough.

This is where Wordle for Google Meet comes in, allowing you to play Wordle games without ever having to open a new tab.

The extension will add a toolbar for Wordle whenever you visit meet.google.com in your browser. You can then click the Wordle icon and subsequently ‘Play Now’ to start a few Wordle games during an ongoing meeting.

Additionally, the Wordle games will be only visible to you unless you decide to share your screen during the meeting.

If you’re looking to solve more puzzles then Wordle Day Selector is the perfect extension for you. Simply download and install the extension above in your browser and then visit the Wordle website.

Once there, you will find a new box in the top left corner of your screen where you can enter a number to play the respective Wordle puzzles.

FAQs

Wordle has grown to be the first viral trend of 2022. Thus here are some commonly asked questions that should help you get up to speed with the latest information. 

Is it safe to use Wordle extensions?

We recommend you exercise caution when using Wordle extensions, or any extensions for your browser. As the game uses locally stored data to track your progress, extensions need to access your local storage as well as current browsing session to help add features to Wordle.

This in turn creates a possibility where these permissions can be misused by your extension provider. Hence, we recommend you check reviews and ratings at least, before installing new extensions in your browser. 

You may want to read Google’s support page for risks associated with extensions here.

Is my data safe when using Wordle extensions?

This depends mostly on the extension, but as long as you are using extensions from trusted sources you should be good to go.

However, if the extension manages your Wordle saves and encounters a bug, then you could end up losing your progress. This shouldn’t happen though but it puts your data at certain risk that you should know about.

Additionally, extensions, in general, can be very easily misused by malicious developers, and hence you should do your thorough research before adding any to your default browser. 

Will extensions cause me to lose my streak?

No, none of the extensions should cause you to lose your Wordle streak unless they are accessing and editing your save data. Your Wordle save data is stored locally on your device and is not stored in a cookie.

This makes it easier to manage but easier to lose as well. While Wordle extensions will rarely cause you to lose this data, privacy-focused extensions and cleaner extensions can cause you to lose this data when clearing your cache files. 

Help! I lost my streak, what to do?

If you have lost your streak then do not fret, you can use this comprehensive guide by us to restore all your lost Wordle data. Needless to say, you will need to have your statistics handy to restore your data.
