This extension scans visited websites for map links. When found it will convert them to the desired target that you set. For this to work, you need to enable the extension to read and alter web pages. You can do this for specific websites only in Safari Extension settings. You can also limit the access to a single day. Granting such access to read and alter web pages is required for the extension to work.
All processing happens locally on the webpage you visit. Only web links are processed. No sensitive information including passwords, phone numbers and credit cards are processed. Neither is the browsing history analyzed. No data is transferred to any central server.
