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.
LinkSync: Syncing a:visited across devices may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust
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 am writing to share details of my recent experience with Lync Sync. I engaged Lync Sync to allow me to sync between my point of sales system (Vend) and Woo Commerce. It was apparent almost immediately that there were serious issues with Lync Sync’s software. We contacted Lync Sync who assured us that the issues were able to be resolved. Six weeks later, not only were the issues not resolved, the issues led to major problems with my business’ website. This meant that we had to shut down the site for a substantial period of time which disturbed our online sales. In addition to the problems with the software, the support offered was terrible. The icing on the cake was the fact that after being assured that I would receive a full refund, I was then told that management had determined that I would only receive a partial refund. I would not recommend dealing with this company. I was very dissatisfied with the software and the service provided and I would encourage others to take their service elsewhere (I am currently using Ant and have had no problems).
