Some browsers can automatically log you off your Honey account or sometimes the extension can also get disabled. This is likely to happen if there is some software update for your browser. Simply go to the extensions page and check if you are logged into the Honey extension or if it is enabled in the first place.
Once this is done, Honey should be working normally. It is also important to note that not all websites and products on Amazon have coupons available for them. So if no coupons are being shown, no need to worry at all.
How To Know if Honey Is Working On Your Browser or Not?
The easiest way to find out if Honey is working for Amazon or any other website is to look for an ‘H’ sign on the upper right hand corner if you are using Edge, Chrome or Firefox and on the left of the search bar if you are using Safar. On supported websites, this ‘H’ should be illuminated with an orange light.
On Safari, there might also be a red bubble with a number on it. If this is present, it means that Honey is compatible with that website. Because Amazon allows for Honey to work on their platform, this icon should be orange whenever you are shopping on Amazon.
Is Honey Safe?
A lot of users are concerned about the safety of browser extensions and this worry is perfectly justified. A lot of web extensions out there can contain malware or they track your data to sell them to third parties.
When it comes to Honey, it is perfectly safe to use it. Although they do collect your shopping data and web browsing data, they have claimed that they don’t sell it to anyone. The data they collect is sent back to their servers to provide users with a better experience and so that the AI within the extension can learn about which pages it should appear on.
Honey has a lot of functionality for Amazon shoppers, including comparing different sellers and finding the best prices for your products. Honey will also give you a price history of the products in your cart. It can also give you an alert whenever the price for particular items drop on Amazon.
Honey is one of the best browser extensions I have used. Not only does it work on thousands of other websites, but it can also end up saving you a lot of money on Amazon and provide you with interesting data about the items you are interested in.
I believe Honey can turn anyone into a smart shopper so you can make better decisions about spending your money.
