BD Traffic Light - A contradiction in description.
I have Bit Defender (paid version) installed on my iMac and was browsing through some Bit Defender extensions in Safari, when I came across the option to install some little program called ‘Traffic Light’.
The message read: ‘Traffic Light 0.2.25 adds a strong & non intrusive layer of security to your browser experience’.
This would seem to indicate that installing this ‘Traffic Light’ thing would be a very good idea. However the following sentence reads:
‘Traffic Light can read, modify, and transmit content from all webpages. E.g. Passwords, Phone numbers and credit card details etc.’
On the face of it, the second sentence contradicts the first. Or am I missing something? Why on earth would you want to install this Traffic Light and give up all your confidentiality?
Does anyone out there have a sensible explanation? BD Traffic Light must be good or the review magazines would have picked up on it long ago. Wouldn't they????
By the way, I removed BD and then installed Kaspersky trial version and found the same message, word for word, in their Safari Extension security thing.
Completely disillusioned by now I went back to BitDefender again because I had already bought two years subscription, but did not install Traffic Light.
Any clues, anyone???
