The function is ideal for use during the 2018 World Cup games and avoid being caught watching the championship during the season.
Check out the tutorial below how to install, configure and use the PanicButton extension in Google Chrome. The procedure was performed in the browser version for macOS, but the tips are also valid for users of Windows PCs.
