I still think ShowIP is a very helpful plugin. I have been using ShowIP for some time now to identify the webhosts of domains. You can use ShowIP perfectly to identify link networks and other shady stuff that is done for link building. Regarding the spyware I am not so worried. If you don’t like the stuff that comes with the update you don’t have to click “ok” or you just remove it in the add-on settings right after you accidentally did.
This installs the AdBeaver Addon without even asking!!
Installs a third party Addon just for some quick cash!
Possibly compromising browser security.
Beware of anyone who uses the word “fair” or “fairness”! Visitors to this page are alerted that something called “AdBeaver” will be installed. Those who were using the add-on before get a pseudo-warning, designed to be given a thoughtless okay as the user runs through the many things that one does when getting a system started. Research AdBeaver, and you'll remove ShowIP altogether!
Current version offers you to add AdBeaver which adds crap like foxydeal to your browser. Be careful not to accept the feature. AVOID.
Adds AdBeaver addon which IMHO is bloat/Malware.
Possible trojan or at least a rescripter... Read my review on AdBeaver to get more details.
Add-on contains adware AdBeaver, there are add-ons that will preform as well or better than Show-IP without compromising your browser. the Adware is a security threat
Version 2.7.6 installe adware AdBeaver
WARNING: Show-IP Version 2.7.6 installs additional Addon AdBeaver - I installed the software a couple of weeks ago. The addon worked well, the reviews had been positive.
Yesterday I was searching on Amazon and then an additional head layer was displayed advertising another shopping site to search the product for.
Honestly: I was shocked. A short research then showed the alliance with AdBeaver.
It is mentioned in the actual description now that AdBeaver is installed upon request / questionaire.
I have to say that I have not seen that during installation, and also never been asked for installation neither would I ever accept that.
It is definitive sensitive information where I spend my time and what I search for. Due to the fact that other users also complain, that the installation of the AdBeaver was not intended and without prompt my feeling is to been tricked and sold. Sad for the good addon, but I can't recommend it to install.
I wasn't even aware it had introduced adware in my browser. uninstalled
I don't remember installing this, have never used it, and now it tries to install adware (AdBeaver). Useless and potentially harmful, so I'm removing it. Considering the previous reports on bugs and spyware associated with it, I would recommend others to do the same and Mozilla to remove this from their add-on library.
Addon tries to install adware every chance it gets cannot recommend to anyone anymore.. Used to be good now its worthless.
I strongly urge people to think twice before installing this addon because it has partnered with adware (AdBeaver). Beware of both addons and find something better that respects the user rather than trying to profit from them.
Used this add-on for a few years now, but now it has become adware after installing AdBeaver without me agreeing to it. I am uninstalling it.
This was usefull until it installed the AdBeaver extension unwillingly. It gathers information about it's users and installs spyware addons without you knowing.
Doesn't work anymore with latest update of the plugin and FF
This plugin used to be crucial for my work. But ads? Really? Uninstalled.
ADWARE - BEWARE
I used to like this app. It turned into adware without warning.
SHAME SHAME - Don't use this. The developers violate your trust!
Saw this extension but didn't remember when I installed it. Tried deleting it several times. It came back every time. Process of elimination, I deleted this app after I got an error alert about it taking to long to respond. Deleted AdBeaver AND ShowIP and it all cleared up.
This addon caught my eye while I was looking at packet traffic form my computer for a totally unrelated reason.
The addon continually transmits data to api.ip2info.org (server located in Germany at Hetzner datacenter) even WITHOUT any activity inside the browser.
Traffic is encrypted.

I assume the worst, so I deinstalled this addon.
The authors made this new version after users repeatedly reported the adware/malware problem. See here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472
Anyway, how much can we trust developpers who add such content to their extension on an automatic update without any warning/mention?
Please note the extension won't automatically upgrade from 2.5 to 2.7, you'll have to uninstall the bad version and then install the good one.
Les auteurs ont mis cette nouvelle version à disposition suite aux plaintes répétées des utilisateurs. Voir ici : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472
Cependant, comment faire confiance à des développeurs capables d'ajouter un contenu pareil à leur module en profitant de la mise à jour automatique sans le moindre avertissement ?
À noter que le module ne se met pas automatiquement à jour de la version 2.5 à la version 2.7, il faut désinstaller la première et installer la deuxième.
Used to be good and useful. Now calls panoramtech.net on every web page you visit: welcome to the ads, pop-ups, high privacy risks and phishing attempts world.
Here's the WOT scorecard for panoramtech.net: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/panoramtech.net
A été un bon module fort utile. Appelle désormais panoramtech.net pour chaque page visitée : bienvenue dans le monde des pubs, pop-ups, gros risques pour le respect de la vie privée et de la confidentialité, ainsi que des tentatives d'hameçonnage.

De plus, la politique de confidentialité du module ne comporte aucune mention de cet adware.
Ne pas installer.
As reported previously, this extension now contains malware (or at least loads a page without my consent).
Given the lack of reaction, I have also reported this issue on Firefox's BTS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472
This add-on has adware in it. It was a great add-on and I used for for many years.
The secret addition is unethical
just removed this plugin!
no longer working.
breaks the menu/toolbar customization.
