FAQ

= Why does this plugin need to call tldr.io’s server on every page it’s used? =

The tldr.io summaries are stored on our servers. They are indexed by the URL of the article they’re the tldr of. So we need the embed widget to tell our servers the URL corresponding to the requested tldr, so we can send it to the widget. The calls are secured by SSL, meaning they can’t be read by third parties.
