If the first steps on how to reset the Chrome extension settings did not work well. Or you can not open the Google Chrome web browser (or another web browser such as Vivaldi). You can try this instruction steps:

  • In Google Chrome there is a folder that saved your extension settings on this path:
    • C:\Users\YOUNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Sync Extension Settings\bfbmjmiodbnnpllbbbfblcplfjjepjdn
    • C:\Users\YOUNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings\bfbmjmiodbnnpllbbbfblcplfjjepjdn
  1. Close all Google Chrome windows.
  2. Open this path in your Windows Explorer:
    C:\Users\YOUNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings\
    C:\Users\YOUNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Sync Extension Settings\
  3. And delete this folder “bfbmjmiodbnnpllbbbfblcplfjjepjdn” (the Turn Off the Lights Chrome extension ID number)
  4. When you open now Google Chrome web browser, it should reset the settings (that include the Camera Motion feature to disabled).

The steps are the same on how to reset the Chrome extension settings. That is for all Chromium web browsers such as Vivaldi, Yandex, Opera, and Microsoft Edge.
