    I've installed this app a few days ago, yet I cannot see how this app integrates with Chrome. I've browsed to a few sites marked with a "red" rating from WOT, and yet no warnings. All you can really do is manually search for a website reputation in the app itself.. not very useful as we can do that on their website.

    What is strange is that they advertise it as it works with Chrome for Android...

    I have not yet installed WOT and I would like to test it with Chrome.
    But, for example, I use BitDefender Mobile and often the warning about the activation of Chrome web security appears to be in a delay or it does not appear at all, even if I feel that it is still working in the background.
    Maybe some problem with integration by Chorme side.

    Same for me. I've tried enabling data usage for the app and everything.

    If it requires Accessibility Access, then be aware it affects your Android Device's Encryption.

    As far as I tested, it isn't required and doesn't prompt you for any additional access. I just felt the need to test it as I couldn't get the app to work by default. I've uninstalled since, will wait for a fix. Looking forward to using it again when "seamless Chrome integration" is actually implemented. Really wanted this app to work.
