If you’re not familiar with the technology, a browser extension or plug-in is a software application that extends your web browser with extra features, modifies web pages, or integrates your browser with other services you use. So, in this case, the MySudo Browser Extension integrates the MySudo app on your mobile device with the web browser on your desktop.
With the MySudo Browser Extension, you can autofill your Sudo details directly from your web browser into the websites you visit.
You’ve chosen a specific Sudo name, handle, email address and phone number for each Sudo you’ve set up on your mobile device. With the browser extension, you can autofill those details directly from your browser into the sign-up fields of web forms without having to go into the app on your mobile device and manually copy them across.
This makes opening an account or buying online faster and easier! Simply put the cursor into a form field and click on the MySudo icon to fill all available fields with your MySudo details. Or open the browser extension (you can pin it to your browser toolbar) and copy/paste directly from there.
Currently, the MySudo Browser Extension lets you autofill your Sudo names (first and last), handles, email addresses and phone numbers— more autofill capabilities are coming soon, including virtual card information, and addresses.
The MySudo Browser Extension also lets you:
Select a specific Sudo to use with a specific website on your desktop and unlock the power of compartmentalization.
MySudo’s superpower is compartmentalization, which is a military strategy for protecting sensitive information by separating it (compartmentalizing it) into different ‘buckets’ or folders—or, in this case, Sudos. Compartmentalization limits damage (to reputation, finances, personal safety etc.) if the personal information in one ‘bucket’ (Sudo) is hit by a data breach or sold by the service you first gave it to.
Using MySudo from your web browser doesn’t limit any of the compartmentalization benefits of using separate Sudos for separate activities—in fact, it makes it easier.
Keep your Sudo information in your desktop web browser in sync with the Sudo information in your mobile device.
If you edit, mute or delete a Sudo and create a new one in the app on your mobile device, simply re-sync your mobile device with your desktop so you’ll always have access to the latest details of every Sudo.
