Google Chrome - Permissions Requested by Apps and Extensions

For Google Chrome users there are a number of extensions that are available to make your browsing experience more unique as well as being used as assistive tools for tasks.

When you install or update apps and extensions, a warning to access your data may appear. The warning doesn't mean the app is dangerous, just that it can be. Accept the warning to allow permission or deny to prevent the app or extension from accessing your information.

Recognize permission levels

Below are the permissions apps and extensions may request and their potential risk levels.

Optional permissions will ask you to deny or allow permissions after the app or extension has been installed. When you allow optional permissions, you can't change them after.
