If they want all your data on all sites... it's because they're recording all your data on all sites. Just because it's available in the Chrome store doesn't mean it has passed any sort of test other than a submission and debug.
New research from security specialists Bitdefender suggests that as many as one third of free Android apps access and upload your private data (including your phone number) to third parties.
Bro, I work in data so I know this is happening because I write software programs that query the data, package it then upload it to various clients. I'm also in school for information security, meaning I (somewhat) know how to spot this crap and know just how easy and profitable it is to do this kind of crap. I'm not posting this to start a fight or scare people, but I would hope that something on a site that I'm lucky enough to help manage wouldn't cause people to become even more compromised than they likely already are.
Did you try that test or are you just taking those extension's good intentions on faith?
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
