When you install the Save to Pocket Extension for Safari, the permissions that are required to use the extension are displayed in the Preferences window. Here’s a brief explanation of why they are necessary:

Webpage Contents

This permission enables Pocket to show the “Page Saved” notification that’s displayed at the top right corner of your browser window. This permission is used to show and hide this notification and orient it in the proper place. 

Browsing History

Safari enables this permission on any extension that injects JavaScript in the browser window. (The notification mentioned above is powered by JavaScript.)

Aside from URLs that you explicitly save to Pocket, we do not access, store, or transmit anything from your browsing history.
