Addons sending your data to 3rd party websites

  • Some add-ons such as the "SoundCloud Music Downloader" and the "YTGrabber Youtube Downloader" send your data to an external website. On the YTGrabber addon screenshot you can even see which domain on the screenshot.

    Nowhere on the addons.opera.com page are you warned that your data (possibly the entire file?) is sent to an external website which I can tell is logging everything.

    Is this acceptable practise for an Opera add-on? Maybe it's okay. I was just wondering...

  • Nowhere on the addons.opera.com page are you warned that your data (possibly the entire file?) is sent to an external website which I can tell is logging everything.

    Have you checked the extension's permissions?

  • As mentioned above, warning of this is already mentioned in the permissions. Please check the "permissions" category, both on the addons page as well as well as the extensions management page in the browser itself.
