Microsoft Power Automate (Legacy) extension

Microsoft Power Automate lets you automate manual processes and tasks on your computer. Install the extension to automate things on the web like scripting, data extraction, testing, filling out forms and more.

The Power Automate recorder utility will convert your steps to a flow. Just browse through your favorite parts of the web application and collect data, fill forms, download files – do all the things you usually do and see a flow getting developed.

This browser extension requires additional software to perform properly. Make sure that you've downloaded and installed Power Automate to your device before continuing.

Note: After a specific date that will be announced officially by the browser group, the browser will no longer support web extensions created by Manifest V2. The specific web extension is based on Manifest V2, and it is compatible with Power Automate version 2.26 or earlier and it will stop being functional after that date. Please upgrade to Power Automate version 2.27 or later and install the new Microsoft Power Automate web extension for continuing the automation of web scenarios. Learn more here:

Risk impact

Microsoft Power Automate (Legacy) requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Microsoft Power Automate (Legacy) if you trust the 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

Microsoft Power Automate (Legacy) 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.
