However, we cannot say whether Screen Dream Toolbar could act this way.
Besides the permission to read your browsing history the application could ask as you to let it “Read and change your data on a number of websites” and “Manage your apps, extensions, and themes.” Such permissions could give the add-on access to more browsing data or even make it possible to change content you see on some websites.
