Risk impact

Guardio Protection for Edge 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

Guardio Protection for Edge 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.

does what it says but says almost every site is a "danger" and the sites that are a smaller danger are i guess 100% the most same website ever, like what? is roblox the most dangerous site to ever be known to mankind? Is this website that tried to give me a virus instead of music super safe? this is stupid, but I guess if you dont have any other options this is... fine I guess. also, this has said I have went to 2 very dangerous sites even though I have never gone to them, and not in the "its url is not what it really says" way either. I mean I still use it but if I had any better free options then that would be great. but also it said that an audio file (mp3) was a "VERY" dangerous virus, like wtf do you mean its an AUDIO FILE not even an mpeg or webm or something, if I had any better antiviruses i would call this one a piece of sh*t.

How do I know that this is installed on Edge other than seeing the message on this page that It is installed on my computer?
