Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This plugin has the worse security issues I've seen so far in a plugin. It sends ALL your URLs (including local traffic, and HTTPS) to third parties, including Google, and some ADS service.

AVOID AT ALL COST.

Wow, now I am super-nervous Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What I want to know is why is Firefox still offering this? I suggest they take a new look at their approval process.

Another one bites the dust Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Uninstalling everywhere. This is now a vector for serving targeted adds. Folks at ip2info.org are "monetizing". Arguably, this add-on was already a security issue. Considering all your visited urls are handed to a 3rd party.

Evil ShowIP Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm not embarrassed that I've been using ShowIP for so many years, and they suddenly started injecting ads into my pages. I'm embarrassed at how many people I've recommended this extension to. Well, I take it back 100 fold - and, I've removed it!

Now Worthless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Today I suddenly started seeing random slide in "Deals" and thought I had malware. Nope, it turns out the ShowIP extension now wants to show me deals. It was amazingly useful. Now it is disabled and will never come back.

Dead to me. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Today (2/18/14) it started showing pop-up promo offers on an ecommerce site. One less plugin for my firefox to load I guess!

Secret Adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This plugin was great until I started noticing random popups and ads on sites like Youtube. At first I thought it was Youtube but then I noticed the corner of the ad said ad by ShowIP. After removing the plugin all the ads and popups are gone. Not worth it.

indeed, read the privacy statement beforehand Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As developer said, please read carefully the Privacy Statement before installing the addon, especially part 3:

"ShowIP provides access to many external web services using ShowIP "actions". ...
... Some of them are available by default ...
... Each of these actions are different and are all run by third parties with no direct relationship to ShowIP or the people who develop them.
Each service will receive the relevant information it needs to do its lookup in the URL for the service. This may be information about the current server/page such as its, URL, IP address. ....
... Please refer to each service's posted privacy policy for additional information."

So, installing this add-on YOU are agree to share your browsing data with unknown third parties and some of them are switched on by default!

Many thanks for the heads up lil_king420. I would probably have installed this and never known about the privacy concerns.

It's got me wondering about FlagFox now, which I've used for years and which has a pretty detailed privacy statement. But as they use quite a few third party services I think I'll be taking a closer look now. Cheers.

Best Add-On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You can set this add-on to display the ISP, therefore telling you if the site you are visiting is genuine! This is very helpful, and interesting just to browse around and see who owns sites!

This IS a must-have for everyone!
