Why do I have to enter my email, password and device ID? Does it store or send my password to another place?

Ans: Information from the developers website: The chrome extension only stores email, device id and Android Market cookie in Chrome's local storage, on your computer. To be able to get Android Market cookie, it needs your email and password to login at . After it’s done, password is not stored, email is stored to display on Options page, Device ID and Cookie are stored for later requests. I do not send those information to another sites.
