Why does the Chrome Extension need these permissions?
Read and change all your data on the websites you visit:
- The ClickUp Chrome Extension requires this permission because the extension must be able to access the web page to take screenshots and to attach URLs to tasks. Chrome displays this as being able to read your history.
- This is required for saving edited screenshots to your computer.
There is no data sent to ClickUp, except for error reports coming from the extension, tasks, notes, and emails that you choose to attach to tasks.
