Latest reviews

  • (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) SheGoth: 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) Kibby: I like this extension, but why isn't "scan download URLs" in the management settings?
  • (2020-12-03) Aninuscsalas: 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: 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
  • (2020-07-05) Malikul Akbar: Nice app
  • (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 g: 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.
  • (2018-02-19) JC TUDO JUNTO E MISTURADO: vou testar
  • (2018-02-03) Jeffrey Thomas: Tech blogs say extensions are viruses now. Developer respond and proof and i change rating.
  • (2017-11-06) Salvador Pelfort Gregori: Tota ajuda és poca, i aquí tenim una pila d'antivirus que treballen alhora.Cadascun i diu la seva. Decideixes amb coneixement de causa. A banda el normal és utilitzar-lo en llocs especials, dubtosos etc..
  • (2017-11-03) Said Boubaker: Salem il faut savoir que la sécurité 100 % n'existe pas mais vous pourrait faire des mise a jour de tout les logiciel dans vaut pc quotidien vous minimiser les risques de piratage par des hackers ou des pirate qui cherche les FAI ou a Cracker les antivirus. Le Bardo Tunisia
  • (2017-10-21) CyberSavage Turk: İyi Valla Bence Kullanın.
  • (2017-09-17) Горан Симовић: prava stvar
  • (2017-09-17) JaJe: I like this app, I would suggest to add an option to enable autoscan for each .exe/.zip/.rar/etc files downloaded and while it safe the app to do nothing, but if one of antiviruses detect something suspicious then the app will warn you.
  • (2017-09-16) Prevention is the best protection!
  • (2017-06-22) Monica B.: I use this every day. Thank You!!!
  • (2017-05-02) Атанас Китов: Perfect extension. Thanks for making it available for us.
