VIA App wirelessly mirrors your Chromebook / PC Chrome browser screen to a display using a VIA device. Just add the VIA App to your Chromebook or PC Chrome browser and login to start presenting. VIA turns any screen into a meeting point for ideas to stream freely without conventional restrictions that use up meeting resources. VIA is a wireless audio-visual integrator that connects to an existing wireless network and links every device in a meeting room to the primary presentation screen. VIA gateways are real BYOD Wireless Collaboration devices for all your presentation needs.

Minimum VIA Version - 2.5
Risk impact

VIA Screen Share 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 VIA Screen Share 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

VIA Screen Share 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.

VIA should justify requesting "Read your browser history" permissions and add a privacy policy, or it drop the requirement. Installing this app provides access that could easily leak sensitive corporate and personal info. I would avoid it until VIA justifies the need.

Currently, the extension doesn't work for me. I also had problems with it in the past. My only option is to use the VIA app in Windows. But, all my software, docs, and slides are in Linux. Until they get it working, possibly working together with the tech department, the extension is complete garbage.

Such a big improvement over the old VIA extension! So far it has worked smoothly on all of my computers and Chromebooks. I'll update if I see any issues with it in the future...
