Description of the issue:
The Authy Two-Factor Authentication application is available as a Chrome Extension. When I go to the Chrome Web Store (via my Brave Browser on MacOS), find the Authy Extension, and click on the “Add to Chrome” button, a Brave pop-up warns that this extension has not been reviewed by Brave and may be malicious. I want to know if this review is planned; if so, when will it be done; and if not, what risks would I be taking if I ignored the warning.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- In Brave, go to the Chrome Web Store, and find the Authy Extension: URL https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/authy/gaedmjdfmmahhbjefcbgaolhhanlaolb?hl=en
- Click on the blue “Add to Chrome” button on the upper right corner of the page.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Now that I have seen the warning, I don’t know what to do about it. Should I just wait (possibly forever) until Brave reviews this particular extension? Can I safely ignore the warning and proceed anyway? Or should I just give up on the hope of ever using Authy from within my Brave browser?
