Ratings and Reviews
Its funny that this is supposed to be a feature in OS that I have never been able to use. this app is way worth the money. Thank you for doing what my computor provider didnt seem to be able to do!
Why do sites not natively support PiP? No one knows. But this little app does a great job, and when I encountered the rare website the doesn't play nice, I found the developer very responsive.
Permissions: reads your passwords and credit cards
When enabling OverPicture, it states that the app will be able to access "sensitive information from webpages, including passwords, phone numbers, and credit cards on: all webpages.” It does not give me a choice to disable this property. I want to use this app but I need a way to disable this property before I allow it access to my passwords and credit cards.
Developer Response ,
Hi! OverPicture extension must access all web content to detect video players and enable Picture-in-Picture. But as any App Extension it is sandboxed by default and it is configured so it cannot share data with the network or any other app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
