Do extension authors have access to the information that's accessed by the extension?
I'm mostly curious as to how the permission "Access your data for all websites" works. I have a couple of questions:
1 - Do the guys who develop extensions have access to the data processed by the extension or is the data only saved on the local machine?
2 - Does the extension have access to secure pages (HTTPS://)?
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 29.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0
That would make it spyware.
