What is Filtered Interview Tool?
'Filtered Interview Tool' is a Chrome extension that levels the playing field during interviews by monitoring the websites candidates visit. It does not assess previous browsing data or cookies, focusing solely on the tabs opened during the interview. While ensuring fairness, the extension also respects privacy, only accessing information related to browsing during the interview period.

Summary

Collecting this data creates a fair experience for all candidates by allowing legitimate use, such as checking reference documentation, while flagging negative activities like searching for pre-built solutions. The extension does not evaluate or store previous history, cookies, or other browser data.

We encourage you to close all open tabs before installing the extension and starting the interview.

Your privacy and comfort while taking the interview are important. This extension uses the Chrome API that allows extensions to access tabs, including URLs and titles. When installing the Filtered Extension in Chrome, you will receive a security alert that says the extension can "read your browser history." This lets you know that as you open and close tabs, the extension can access information about the sites you are visiting. This permission does not grant access to your entire browser history - only tabs open when you launch your interview and those you access during the interview. More information can be found in the Chrome Extension Developer documents here: https://developer.chrome.com/docs/extensions/reference/tabs/

Using this is easily one of the creepiest things that I've ever been asked to do for an interview. Monitors your tabs, records audio and video form your computer. Gets your home address etc. Asks permission after the interview to authenticate to either your linkedin(and grabs all the info) or your other social media accounts. I am deeply regretful after having used this extension, and wish I had decided not to interview using this tool. If you care for your personal information at all do not use!

It's a very unprofessional way to make an interview. It's a very bad way to build relationship with your co-workers. Run away.
