Google Tells Lawmakers It Allows Other Apps Access To Your Gmail

  • 6 years ago
Google admits that it still allows third-party apps access to your messages.

Digital Trends says Google defended its policy in a letter to lawmakers. Before any non-Google app can access your data, Google will display a permissions screen to show what data the app is requesting and how the app intends on using such data. Given that there are more than 1.4 billion Gmail users worldwide, that is a lot of data that could fall into the wrong hands.
