Doesn't work
by Tucker Bottin Tucker Bottin, 2023-05-23

Why does the DOD not allow you to download extensions but then require you to have an extention to access a self-service program? On top of that, it does not work on my personal computer at all. So what was the point of this? This was stupid.

Leave it to the DoD to waste money on this. Portal and programs for self service are a joke. User will not buy own Active client just to use this! Portal will not work on an Army computer. Please tell me who in the frack is supposed to use this? Bet someone got promoted or bonus for this BS.

Risk impact

HID Credential Management Extension 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

HID Credential Management Extension 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.
