Risk impact

ISAM ESSO requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this add-on unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

ISAM ESSO is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Unfortunately this needs to be updated for the Firefox 64 bit version in the Software Center currently as it is not working for that particular browser at this time. Otherwise this would be a 5 star rating. I'll update when things are fixed.

ISAM ESSO does not save password on Microsoft Edge. So, disappoint and have to enter password every time for all applications. Don't know why it is on Microsoft Edge and does not work

Works great in Edge, all you have to do is just re-download it from the software store & viola, it works the same as it did in IE.
