Third-party developers able to scan Gmail accounts

Third-party developers able to scan Gmail accounts

In short, developers need to show that they're doing what they tell users they're doing, and they need to prove that they need access to email messages to do that. Millions of people are believed to have installed Gmail apps.

After the Facebook data misuse scandal hit the headlines in March, Apple was quick to point out that the iPhone maker doesn't have to sell user data because its customers aren't its product.

It added that some developers had been denied access to Gmail as they failed to meet specific criteria outlined in Google's verification process, including not asking for permissions the apps will not use.

The other nine, including the Schaffer family, were injured. "Maleka would be I guess what I call a shooting star", Grimes said. She was on vacation with her sister, Brooke , mother, Stacey , and stepfather, Paul Bender , at the time of the explosion.

"Some people might consider that to be a dirty secret", says Mr. Loder. There's no doubt that some of the actions described, such as having employees read users' emails to train machine learning algorithms, are cause for alarm.

Clients and services may require access; a third-party email client needs access to emails, and an add-on that runs directly on Gmail needs access as well. Google itself is very strict about giving employees access to emails and limits it to situations where a security issue or bug requires it, or when users give Google explicit permission to do so according to the Wall Street Journal.

"Before a published, non-Google app can access your Gmail messages, it goes through a multi-step review process that includes automated and manual review of the developer, assessment of the app's privacy policy and homepage to ensure it is a legitimate app, and in-app testing to ensure the app works as it says it does", Frey says. According to the report, apparently it has become "common practice" for marketing companies to scan the emails of their users, although we suppose common isn't necessarily good.

The decision is meant to protect the image of the race because the British rider is at the centre of an ongoing doping case. Team Sky has responded, saying: "We are confident that Chris will be riding the Tour as we know he has done nothing wrong".

Some Gmail users may be shocked when they realize that humans may have read their emails on Gmail. It is said to have allowed its employees access to "thousands" of user emails to help develop the app's Smart Reply feature.

"Consumers must put their foot down and demand - not ask; demand - clarity on how their data is stored or viewed or accessed by any third party", Tobok says.

Google allows you to check which apps are connected to your account.

Google said past year its computers would no longer scan Gmail inboxes for info to personalize ads, so that users could "remain confident that Google will keep privacy and security paramount".
