Risk impact

Instant Dictionary by requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

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

Instant Dictionary by has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

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.

Just downloaded it & it works! (: It makes my studying time so much quicker therefore easier (: It's really awesome, I'd recommend it to anybody who just needs an app where you can easily get your definition just by double tapping a word & it'll pop up or you could even type it in their search bar by clicking the extension icon on the upper right corner of the page. & it pops up really quickly! :D Bada-bean-bada-boom! just like that. hehe
