Risk impact

AwesomeDrive for Google Drive requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

AwesomeDrive for Google Drive has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

I see different issues and complaints with very little support...and that is worrie sum...

Lo docs de Office se abren directamente desde Drive, y las actualizaciones del contenido quedan grabadas también allí, sin tener que andar descargando y subiendo. Muy cómodo.

Great extension. The only thing is that each time I open a Microsoft document the system asks me to 'Enable Editing' and then when I make changes to the doc and save it's not able to save it to my Google Drive and instead I have to save it to my local drive which defeats the purpose. Is there a way to solve this issue?
