okey so let me just point out that ive been using WOT extension for well over 4 years. however this is the last straw in dealing with this pathetic extension.

over the course of a couple months ive noticed that ive been having extremely odd events happen on sites that i frequently use. upon login the page refreshes as normal but im booted back to the login page as usual.. i thought hmm maybe it was a connection error. opened F12 and tried again.... nope... okey so somethings wrong here and thought it was just chrome itself

as the months go by till now when i actually gave the bother to look into and fix the dam problem. ive come to the conclusion after 5-10 minutes of test that WOT was pretty much blocking me from logging into website that i frequently used.

also noticing that

*Read and change all data on websites you visit*

WTF is that bullshit and when did permissions escalate to such a demanding permission that i never wanted WOT having in the first place.

after disabling WOT the sites i frequented. like!

Deviantart.com
Warframe.market
Warframe.com
twitter.com
soundcloud.com
myanimelist.net

Just to name a few. was all working fine again and i could successfully login and operate the site as it should have been.

the only exception to login to the sites i was having issues was with was to do a full cookie delete session and i could then login, but i could do nothing else because if you try navigate or use the site that involves a refresh. im automatically logged back out :S


and this cannot log back in and get the problem mentioned above.


sorry but if you ask me. something very odd is going on here and even contemplating that this might have turned into a somewhat intrusive addon. manipulating how i browse in my day to day life.

and no before anyone says it. i did not download this of some 3rd party site. i got it directly via chromes extension webstore.

FYI : WOT doesn't block anything, it only warns when you want to visit sites that are detected as dangerous.
And you try to tell us that within 5 or 10 minutes you have the evidence of the opposite ?
I have my doubts........
