Change Log

Version 3.0.1

Please note to use this extension features, you HAVE to click on the extension icon to activate the "auto text expander" feature on the website you are on. This is to prevent our script from running automatically on all websites you visit.

This protects your privacy and ensures your browsing history/keyboard typing history etc is NOT sent to external third party websites. Other competitor text expander software scripts "run on all websites" and you have to trust them to ensure they are not sending this information back to their servers etc. For our extension, it is impossible for us to track your keystrokes because the software only works when you click on the extension icon.

Version 3.0.3 Change

Made a bug fix where a warning message showed up after we updated to manifest version 3.

To add text expander text - please right click on the extension icon and choose options. You can add as many text shortcuts as you want inside the options page of this extension.
