Grammarly can check your grammar and spelling while you type in your web browser. It works with Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Below you will find step-by-step instructions for how to add it to Chrome, and you can check the Grammarly website here for help adding it to either Safari or Firefox.
1. The first task is to sign up for a Grammarly account. Go to grammarly.com. If you have an account already, you can skip this step. If you do not have an account, click "Sign Up" in the top right corner once you are on the Grammarly homepage.
2. Once you've signed up for an account, download the Grammarly extension. For Chrome, Safari, or Firefox extensions, click here.
3. When you use the link above you should be taken to the following page. For Chrome, click the green "Chrome Store" to take you to the following page.
4. Once you click "Chrome Store" you will be taken to this page. Click "Available on Chrome" in the top right corner to take you to the download page.
5. Watch for a confirmation pop-up. It will appear after you click on the "Available on Chrome" button. This allows the app to read what you write.
6. If you've downloaded the extension correctly the Grammarly icon will show up in your browser.
7. When you click on the logo a menu will pop up. Make sure you do the following:
- The first slider is set to "On"/Green.
- The second slider is set to "On"/Green.
- The "I write in" section is set to the correct language.
You're done! Happy writing! (Grammarly will also work in Microsoft Word. For instructions on how to download the Word Add-in, see this article.)
