  • (2023-03-10) Millan Ferende: I'll give it 4 stars! Because the notification for "Images are ignored from scanning" is very annoying! So I had to disable the "File scanning" feature... otherwise it would have been a solid 5/5! :)
  • (2023-03-09) X. Force: Spent time to register and got an API key to try. Keeps telling me "insert a valid key"
  • (2023-02-27) Malikul Akbar: hi, please update we without having click yes notice, give as option to check always upload and scan
  • (2023-02-19) alex squibbs: it works and all, it just would never unpause downloads after checking, so id have to manually unpause them which made the extension a hassle to use.
  • (2022-12-23) cy chen: thanks for your work! I find that there is Don't scan document feature. But maybe let user Customizetheir own ignore file extensions list would be better like .webm .mp4, etc. or if file is bigger than some threshold then ignore since big file usually is just data not execution file
  • (2022-08-23) I love this extension, it help in a lot of situations. One suggestion, I often deal with very long URLs that get cut and in that case the VT icon doesn't show up.
  • (2022-08-18) inr egoist: It might be great if extension could set self-defined file extension as ignore list. Or set certain domain to be safe as ignore list.
  • (2022-06-26) Алексей: Отлично!
  • (2022-03-22) Alper Çağlar: Sıradan bir resmi bile indirirken 10 saniyelik bildirim kutucuğu açılıyor ve bu oldukça rahatsız edici. Ayarlarında falanda bu bildirim kutucuğunu kapatmak gibi bir seçenek bulamadım.
  • (2022-03-18) Von Dutch: Thanks for this!
  • (2022-03-16) Jeff Haussler: Version 4.0.0 breaks login to our corporate firewall web interface, it puts me in a "your session has expired please login again" endless loop.
  • (2022-03-16) Daisuke: [2022/03/16] * Before version 4.0.0 - ★★★★☆ * Version 4.0.0 - ★★☆☆☆ Since this version, I can no longer log in to the internet banking of MUFG Bank's website in Japan. Until recently, I was able to log in. To find the cause, I tried with incognito window of google chrome, turned off chrome extensions that might affect it, and finally found that this extension was the cause. If I turn off only this extension, I can log in. The login error (in Japanese) is as follows: -------------------------------------- 正しい取引開始画面から操作されていません。再度お取引を行ってください。 ※取引の途中でブラウザの「戻る」を使用すると、取引開始画面が正しく認識されない場合があります。 -------------------------------------- The English translation is as follows: -------------------------------------- You are not operating from the correct transaction start screen. Please perform the transaction again. * If you use the browser's "back" button during a transaction, the correct transaction start screen may not be recognized. -------------------------------------- This online banking site seems to have a specification that requires a screen transition by clicking a link button on the site, etc., or else an error screen will appear. The above error usually occurs when you use the "back" button on the browser to move from one screen to another. I think it's a problem that this extension is affecting the operation and behavior of the website behind the scenes! Please fix it.
  • (2022-02-27) Erik Olson: Extremely useful!
  • (2022-02-09) Thiago: Ótimo app, simples e muito útil... Lembrando essa ferramenta não substitui o software antivírus
  • (2022-02-05) Mêlis Farothserkê: С недавних пор спрашивает на проверку каждый файл, несмотря на запрет проверку документов.
  • (2021-09-18) Zach B: Everything about this extension is great, however requiring me to go to the result page instead of just showing the detection rate and community stats in a compressed summary format is very tedious. Would be a 5 star rating otherwise
  • (2021-04-26) Carlos Zerquera: Es muy buena
  • (2021-04-01) Citytop: This is a must need for Internet users that have privacy download concerns and also engage in risky behavior. Been using this for months now and it has seriously helped out in fishing out bad download directories. It also gets updates, so you know the developers are not sleeping on some useless extension like so many do across the Chrome store these days.
  • (2021-03-19) Prasana Kannan: is this extension backed by google ? why "Send anonymous passive DNS data to VirusTotal" is opted in by default. could you guys please clarify?
  • (2021-02-01) *: please add showing the results as popup instead i the results-link, and auto uploading, so everything can be set&forget
  • (2021-01-27) - VM: Firefox版は正常に動くのに、Chrome版はダメ!!
  • (2021-01-13) Grappler: Virus Total funziona da dio, mentre questa estensione (provata sia su chrome che edge), non funziona come dovrebbe. Vado per scaricare un file, che come da copione, viene arrestato: il problema è che VT4 non riesce a caricare il file e ad analizzarlo risultando totalmente inutile
  • (2020-12-10) Absham Tauseef: So great.
  • (2020-12-08) Shanna: I like this extension, but why isn't "scan download URLs" in the management settings?
  • (2020-12-03) Aninus Partikler: It's not working. Great idea but no. But the site (virustotal.com) is great.
  • (2020-11-10) Jochen: "Insert text/hash to search" does nothing.
  • (2020-11-09) Kaleb Kenway: Love the extension. Thank you for fixing it.
  • (2020-10-28) HANA ŠVEDOVOVÁ: NO FUNCTION !!! so you right click on the suspicious link and select the Scan with VirusTotal option from the context menu. After you reinstall your Google does not control the right mouse button
  • (2020-10-27) Nikola Tomic (Nykk Deetronic): It works great! But for some reason - now it does not asks to send downloads for scan. Are there any newer versions than from 2018 or 2019?
  • (2020-08-24) Matthew Lopez: It works just like you would expect, sending files you download to VirusTotal. It would be nice to be able to see the results of the scan in the prompt, though.
  • (2020-07-07) Nick: Support was amazing and extension works perfectly
  • (2019-12-03) shadow time: 其功能會偷走你所有下載的資料並上傳至virustotal內,注意,是所有下載的資料,從圖片到重要文件都會偷,本人已經因為這該死的擴充元件偷上傳一堆重要文件被革職了,幹
  • (2019-11-30) Андрей Б.: После обновления без моего ведома, ему потребовались новые разрешения: "Просмотр и удаление ваших данных на посещаемых сайтах" "Управление скачанными файлами" Да ещё и русского языка нет в настройках. Зачем? Очень подозрительно. Удаляю.
  • (2019-11-27) Yusuke Urameshi: Nunca detecta a página. Sempre define como http://undefined/
  • (2019-11-09) E N: The popup box is driving me crazy. I think I'm going to delete the extension and check every download manually. Please, please give us a way to hide the pop-up or display the information more discreetly!
  • (2019-10-26) CombatSwift: The extension won't allow me to download pictures, I've tried disabling settings in the extension and I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the same issue arises I like the extension but I literally cannot use it anymore, If this issue gets fixed I will change my review and reinstall.
  • (2019-10-23) trippy: It has SAVED me on multiple occasions, this program should be automatically installed on chrome.
  • (2019-10-22) Виктор Тищенко: Пока претензтий нет. Работает чётко. Благодарю.
  • (2019-10-22) Curtis Hoareau: Why does this now need more permissions, as chrome has disabled it because of these "newrequirements"?
  • (2019-10-22) Aleksandar Ilić: It worked just fine, I don't really want this "VT4Browsers" and access to everything permissions. I'm not enabling this.
  • (2019-10-22) Karl Traxler: Wieso zwei zusätzliche, potentiell gefährliche Rechte (Downloads verwalten, Mitlesen aller Website-Inhalte) verlangen mit Version 3.0?
  • (2019-06-19) adriano queiroz: muito útil .... cliquem com a direita do mouse em cima de qualquer Link mande escanear
  • (2019-03-22) Cristobal Rodriguez: No lo Detecta Todo, aunque Dé Negativo en Malwares, Si Puede Haber Malwares dentro de la página web que se ha analizado.
  • (2019-02-13) Allap Stone: неплохо
  • (2018-12-04) Nick C: I don't know if the API for Chrome extensions has been updated yet to enable this, but this thing could probably be improved to automatically scan incoming downloads, in addition to manual scans.
  • (2018-09-20) Geidson Galvão: great!
  • (2018-09-10) Geniales Tool. Sehr hilfreich, wo heutzutage so viele Seiten verseucht sind.
  • (2018-07-08) vexingcosmos: The functionality of this extension is exactly what I expected. It gives the benefits of a scan with virustotal in one click. However, the design is very strange. Every part of its design seems like it is unaffiliated with virustotal which is obviously untrue as virusotal links to it on their site. Each scan opens a virustotal page that is unlike the one I am used to. The logo doesn't even match. I have no idea why these decisions were made, but it is very off-putting to use even if it works great.
  • (2018-06-02) John L. Reed: It's working great.
  • (2018-04-02) Jonathan Santos: funciona muito bem, mas não para todos os links, alguns ele não reconhece... principalmente na aba favoritos.
