Ad Guard Icon Permissions


New Member
In Safari's extensions there is one called Ad Guard Icon. When this is highlighted I see some very alarming text that says:

Can read sensitive information from webpages, including passwords, phone numbers, and credit card numbers.

From all web pages.

All browsing history can be seen.

I do not understand this. Ad Guard has access to all my passwords and credit card numbers when I type them in? How can this be possible?

Please help me understand this.

Thank you very much.


Usually you get this type of message when you access a website through http and not https.

Try to change the link to make sure it is encrypted.
