Risk impact

Multimedia Search 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

Multimedia Search 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.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD! In the first place I have no clue how this app even got on my computer. All of a sudden randomly my internet searches were being directed to yahoo. It has taken me hours to track down the culprit. Extremely irritated by the inconvenience it kept causing me. This is an app I would never by choice add to my computer. So I highly would not recommend. I truly do not even understand its purpose besides to annoy or possibly scam. No Thank You!

Brings me to yahoo when I search for something and yahoo doesn't even bring me to what I have searched for, if your planning to install I suggest you don't.

Won't let me do my usual search style (eg: I tried to search about school breaks in other countries, it saw that I had just typed 'sch', but didn't register that I had chosen a search option from the autocomplete and sent me to not only a completely different search engine from the one I was just using, but gave me a completely different list from what I needed). Not worth cluttering up your extensions with.
