After analysis of 1,237 Google Chrome extensions available via the Chrome Web Store, researchers from data protection company Incogni concluded in a recent report that almost half (48.6 per cent) have a high or very high-risk impact. This means that they may be storing sensitive, personally identifiable data. The advice is for users to be vigilant and to only choose extensions from trusted developers i.e., those with a history of problem-free software development and high user ratings.
