Lyq: Leak Your Query - version 2.0

GENERAL INFORMATION

Lyq (Leak Your Query, pronounced as leak) is a micro "unintentional" blogging tool that tweets (leaks) what you've searched automatically. It is a Google Chrome Extension, and after you've installed Lyq, it discloses your search query every your search at various services such as Google or Bing. Everyone can know what information you needed, where you wanted to go, or what you thought, that previously only your search services could know.

Do NOT use this extension unless you know what you are doing with it. You will face serious security risks.

Supported Search Services

Lyq extracts a search query from the following search services:

  • Google web, images, videos, news, maps (experimental)
  • Bing web, images,videos, news, maps (experimental)
  • YouTube
  • Nico Nico Douga
  • Twitter

USAGE

The Lyq icon next to the address bar works as a toggle switch and you can turn on/off Lyq by clicking it. When it is turned on, it tweets your search query.

Optionally you can add a hashtag and/or a shorten URL to the search result. Go Options page to enable them. To open the options page, right click on the Lyq's icon or select Extensions from Tools menu.

WARNINGS

Lyq may leak any hidden URLs. Some web services achieve privacy protection by hiding URLs and it is expected that you do not disclose them (e.g. Google Calendar and Google Maps).

INSTALL

To install a pre-packaged extension, visit: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/cgiflojkgbimjdbfgfammdbiafknddem

After the first installing of Lyq, it is required to sign in Twitter to authenticate Lyq. Please follow the instructions displayed in newly opened tab and sign in to a Twitter account that you want to post your queries.

When it is authenticated, no more signing is needed until you sign out explicitly (click "sign out" at the option page).

Dependency
