Map Redirect requires access to the web page that you are visiting so that it can read and alter map links that it finds. For that, the extension will ask to get permission to read and alter the web page. As with other Safari extensions from Apple, it will also get access to your browsing history. The browsing history is never read for the functionality of this extension. Only the current visited web page is read and map links altered.

Map links can appear in various forms with different parameters. Map Redirect tries to detect and convert them as much as possible to your desired target. It may happen that some links to not work as expected.

In case Map Redirect does not work on a specific webpage, please contact us and let us know the URL to check and fix it. Thank you for contributing.
