Web Maker needs the following permissions to work with full
capabilities. In words of Chrome extensions:
Read & change all your data on the websites that you visit
- Worry not. This is just required for the new tab replacement feature
where Web Maker shows up only if the new tab url is chrome://newtab/.
Nothing is read, stored or changed.
Web Maker does not track any user specific data. It
uses Google Analytics to track aggregated events to improve user
experience based on what features are used more. If still you want to
opt-out of Google Analytics tracking, please visit
or you can set up a filter in Adblock Plus or similar ad blocker tools
like AdBlock, uBlock or Adblock Pro.
