Great site for checking your grammar. I also like that it detects plagiarism. Very helpful for writing things for school, and just writing in general.

This site promotes a Chrome browser plug-in for checking spelling and grammar, however, once installed, tracks the user and gradually begins a campaign of promoting unwanted services and gradually disables its function so as to push the user into signing up for one of their plans. Deleting the plug-in causes a pop-up page to appear too that begs more information. This is coercive and misleading marketing that is borderline fraud.

So, Grammarly as a company and a website has no doubt as to being legitimate. It has won major tech awards and been reviewed by major publications. Whether or not one finds the product worth the arguably pricey package plans is not really the point here -- nor is the fact that their transparent and clear language in privacy policy that they collect non-identifiable information from the services the same as nefarious tracking. It is consistent with every other extension, add-in, online/freemium/cloud product/platform. I personally find the premium service worthwhile, it seems they're pricing for enterprise/education rather than for individuals but I guess that's they're call. There are free and comparable versions of this product, such as AftD (after the deadline).

Does not do what it claims to do.  It misses things it should catch and says things are not correct that really are.  Not worth the time.

Mock assessment of text stating it found problems without showing or explaining them - looks like a scam - especially with credit card details required before free trial. Bad reviews of the software's performance elsewhere.

Don't know what people talk here about malware and others nasty things. I can tell as a usual user of their software and a customer. It is really great service with strong and useful algorithms for grammar errors checking and correction. I don't know an analog. I have only positive experience working with them and can say only: "Thank you guys, for creating this service!"
