Yes, it is absolutely legal to install Chrome through the software manager.


Google Chrome only official distributes Chrome packages from https://www.google.com/chrome/, where you will find links for both apt (debian/ubuntu) and rpm (fedora/rhel/etc) based system.

You are installing Chrome through a convenience mechanism provided by the Flathub repository. This makes Chrome available via the software manager, so it can be installed (and updated) using the same package management tools you use for other packages.

Google doesn’t provide Chrome via Flathub; this is something done by volunteers who have contributed their time and effort to try to make the installation experience more seamless.
