Description from store Privacy Guardr (formely Privacy Guard) helps you identify extensions and apps that are a privacy risk. Protect yourself against malware and nefarious extensions that seek to compromise your browsing safely. Privacy guard has many features to protect you from malware and unseemly applications. It is an open source project: https://github.com/kzahel/privacy-guard-extension Update Dec 1 2014 - Changed name of app due to trademark conflict with privacyguard.com (credit monitoring service) - Check permissions of installed extensions - See extensions and apps with high risk permissions - (soon) Identify changes to app publisher Sept 12, 2014 - version 0.1.4 - Updated to detect "high risk" apps. Jan 21, 2014 - First released. I wrote this app because I couldn't find anything else like it in the chrome web store and there's been a lot of buzz about chrome extension malware recently. I have some ideas for further improvements to make to this app, but welcome your feedback!
Latest reviews (2016-01-14) Andrew Gryaznov: What a relief! Finally I am not spied on! (2015-05-28) botmtl: Does exactly what it says it does. Those idiots that give it one star can't read. (2015-03-17) Justin Cram: Well it warns me what may be a high risk harmful extensions! Not useful for what I was looking for. (2014-08-03) Davis Graham: Ok maybe I din't read the description perfectly but this provides no security at all. It just ranks "risks" based on what promissions they have. No security details, no options, and not even any security! The stupid extenshion even says it is a risk! Don't even waste your time with this garbage. (2014-07-04) ᴠɪᴅᴇOMᴏᴠɪESʜɪɴᴇ: Eine excellente Erweiterung. Endlich sieht man mal in übersichtlicher Art und Weise, welche Extensions/Apps auf welche Seiten etc. zugreifen. Hoffentlich bleibt sie im Chrome Store und wird weiter entwickelt. (2014-06-20) John Doe: Nice! Does what it says (2014-01-23) me here: Useful. Thanks for taking the time. (2014-01-23) Nicolas Embleton: Works as expected. Tell you which app uses what permission and a bit of factors for evaluating "trust-worthiness". Helped me in cleaning things a bit. Thanks for the extension.
