LazySec is a very simple tool designed for software testers but of general use. It helps in the task of testing Lazy Security implementations, hence the name, in the UI and revealing a pages’ Lazy Secrets, hence the name II, by accomplishing these two things:
UNLOCK ELEMENTS: The extension unlocks all elements of a webpage by taking away some attributes, namely “disabled”, “readonly”, “maxlength”, “required” and others related to form validations. In simple English: this will allow you to write on forbidden fields or write forbidden things. To do this hit LazySec’s “Remove UI Security” button.
VIEW HIDDEN ELEMENTS: The extension makes visible those elements hidden by the “display:none”, “type=hidden”, and “visibility=hidden” attributes / styles. To do this hit LazySec’s “Show Hidden Elements” button.
+ I don’t like opening the console nor “going hunting” by inspecting the page’s DOM
+ Many project managers or Software Architects defend lazy security thingies by stating that unlocking elements of a webpage is something only a “very knowledgeable” or “tech savvy” user can do. Well, now every average Joe with LazySec can do it, so you better watch out!!

ABOUT THE ICON:
I thought I’d let you know what the icon actually is just in case you are not used to watching Picasso’s or Dali’s all of the time. It is an L and an S like this “LS”, but it can also be interpreted as a face shooting an eye beam from the unseen eye. Pretty cool, huh? Can’t unsee now.
