Safety
Risk impact

Surfshark VPN Extension requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this extension unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

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

Surfshark VPN Extension has earned a fairly good reputation and likely 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.

昨天听YBup主推荐买了黑五优惠价,便宜是便宜,但完全没法用。win版慢得像蜗牛,而且根本连不上,耐心被一点点消耗完。chrome插件根本登录不了,说我网络有问题。没办法,只能用别的vpn上网看说明和用户评论,这才知道掉坑里了,我遇到的问题别的用户早就遇到了,应该先看看评论再决定买不买服务。看来只能申请退款,不想再费时费力地摆弄这个软件了。后来者要谨慎。

The chrome extension has become too much to navigate. Can't you guys make a basic chrome extension without all the tabs and other options showing up?

VPN service itself is fine, but randomly opening new tabs to advertise the product I've already bought is not.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
