In the last sentence, what does the word 'all' mean? Thank you!

We have learnt to expect that trains will be punctual. After years of conditioning, most of us have developed an unshakable faith in railway timetables. Ships may be delayed by storms; flights may be cancelled because of bad weather, but trains must be on time. Only an exceptionally heavy snowfall might temporarily dislocate railway services. It is 【all】
too easy to blame the railway authorities when something does go wrong.

What does the word 'all' mean here? Is it an adverb or pronoun?

    All, or more specifically, 'all too,' modifies 'easy.'

    It is saying 'it is incredibly easy...' OR 'it is very easy...'
