  • (2015-12-24) L7vanmatre: The Whitelist section doesn't work, the word section is a bit over done, like I can't say "gay" without it filtering it out, AND I can't even whitelist the word! That makes me mad. But I'm glad that you can blacklist certain words/phrases though. It no longer works on my Chrome after a certain update.
  • (2015-07-27) Owen Griffiths: It worked incredibly well to begin with.. then suddenly stopped working (perhaps due to a Chrome update?) Either way, contacted the developers by email, and got no response; hence the rating to reflect both the now useless app, and lack of resolution or contact from the developer.
  • (2015-01-04) Natasha Amann: It would have been nice if it didnt filter the word "gay". Gay is not a cuss word and should not be filtered.
  • (2014-10-24) It works at a basic level by filtering seemingly everything that is potentially offensive in any context, but that causes as much benign, inoffensive textual content to be filtered as legitimately offensive content. An option to customize the filter's aggressiveness or adjust filtering based upon context would be very helpful.
  • (2014-07-09) Declan McDonnell: It works as described, but I found it overzealous in its filtering attempts. There are alternatives that are more flexible than this. I may return to it in the future as it appears to have ongoing development.
  • (2014-07-05) Patricia Kasper: Awesome! It works!
  • (2014-05-10) David Hicken: Constantly being improved. Nice to have vulgarity filtered!
  • (2014-05-01) April Tew: Works just like it says it does! I would love the ability to add my own filters/words in the future!! Thanks guys!!
  • (2014-02-05) Steve Lloyd: Works as advertised. I am looking forward to the additional features!
  • (2014-02-03) RC Hancock: What an awesome idea to add your own custom filters! I know so many people who will find this useful.
  • (2014-01-31) jeff hicken: Pretty Awesome. I'm looking forward to the ability to add my own custom filters.
  • (2014-01-31) Mark at Argent Cove: Simple filter that catches a lot of profanity. I've been using it for about a month and while it's not perfect, it's pretty cool.

  • (2016-10-15, v:1.1.3) DCTGoddess: Doesn't work at all.
    I am irritated and disappointed this extension doesn't work. Reviews were very good, and that is why I downloaded it. Now, In fact, there are trolls using the worst language writing reviews of your app, in the Google comments section. Gimme a break.
  • (2016-08-18, v:1.1.3) This doesn't fucking work
  • (2016-04-29, v:1.1.3) Jessica Grace: video
    I second the question about a video on a website, can the filter do that?
  • (2016-01-14, v:1.1.3) Does it work
    Does this work?
  • (2016-01-08, v:1.1.3) Ryan Rodriguez: Fails to respond
    Hello, Developers. First of all, I absolutely *love* this, and it was a life-saver for me, while it worked. I was readying myself to donate to you. However, about a day eight months ago, this stopped working for me. Words I'd been protected from started showing again. I didn't tell you this earlier, as I wasn't familiar with how Google's Chrome Store works, and so did not know there to be a feedback section. However, knowing now that there indeed is, I compose this for your scrutiny. I thank you for your time in patience if you have indeed read this. Please consider investigating the issue, and taking the measures you deem necessary to address it.
  • (2015-08-03, v:1.1.3) Tom Snell: Stopped working
    Doesn't work for me any more either.
  • (2015-07-31, v:1.1.3) Kelvin Afolabi: Magically stopped working.
    Maybe it's a Chrome update but for the past week or two, nothing is being filtered out.
  • (2015-07-27, v:1.1.3) Owen Griffiths: Stopped working...
    Not working whatsoever.. perhaps with a recent update? Filtering nothing on any webpage. Contacted you by email, no response.
  • (2015-07-05, v:1.1.3) Skyler Gray: Suddenly stopped working!
    Has been this way for days.
