I wasn’t thinking so much as name ‘n’ shame but more raising general awareness…

for example:
the reason you see a warning when installing plugins though the ‘Add Extension’ routes is because they inherit SU permissions to access and manipulate the underlying system…

I use an app called ‘Hands Off’ that watches all incoming and outgoing attempts and lets me set rules…

It is amazing how much goes on…

Some plugins do say in their ‘Terms of Use’ their intentions and do ask each time if it’s still ‘OK’, similar to SU’s ‘Bug Splat’, others are less transparent…

This thread interested me. I went seek an alternative to the Windows 7 and found the Windows 10 Firewall Control but nothing about file writes. You can advise a program for this purpose?
