Use this extension to sign in to supported websites with accounts on Windows 10 and later versions. If you have a Microsoft supported identity on Windows 10 or later, you won’t be required to enter your credentials to sign in to supported websites. You’ll need to use this extension if your organization has implemented conditional access policy. Currently, this extension supports Azure Active Directory identities.
Windows Accounts requires very minimum permissions.
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.
Windows Accounts is well trusted and should be safe to install.
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.
Not sure why, but this extension, and this one only seems to disappear. I need it to authenticate to an SSO site for AZAD, and it disappears every other time I close my browser. Very obnoxious. I am on Windows 10.
