Sign in and account status
You are not required to create a user account in order to use the Grammarly Firefox extension. If you choose, you can sign in to Grammarly via the Grammarly for Firefox extension by creating an account or using Google or Facebook account authentication. In order to create an account, you will need to provide Grammarly with your name and email address. Once signed in, the extension checks whether you have purchased Grammarly Premium. We may use your email address to send you information about your account or marketing messages (as permitted by applicable law).
When Grammarly for Firefox is initialized in a textbox, the text is sent to our servers so that Grammarly can provide writing suggestions and corrections. This data may also be used where necessary to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Grammarly and its users, to comply with our legal obligations, such as responding to warrants, court orders, or other legal processes, or to improve the algorithms underlying our services. Grammarly’s “G” icon or a green dot is displayed in text fields when Grammarly for Firefox is initialized. Our Products are designed to avoid password fields.
User setting storage
Registered users can save their Grammarly for Firefox settings on Grammarly servers, including dialect preferences and custom dictionaries, so that these settings are synchronized between all Grammarly Products used by you.
New document creation
In addition to the extension, Grammarly Products have a web-based editor. If you click “New Document,” the extension calls our servers to create a new document for you in the Grammarly web-editor. You can choose to provide information about your goals for the new document, such as your target audience, intent, or style.
