A new report concerning Gmail has millions of users freaked out about who (or what) is reading their emails.
Accurately represent themselves: Apps should not misrepresent their identity and must be clear about how they are using your data.
Today in Of Course Silicon Valley Doesn't Care About You, we have Google confirming that "human staff" are allowed to read users' private emails under certain circumstances.
"Some people might consider that to be a dirty secret", says Mr. Loder. Both companies have used their email access to enhance their products and build new technology, representatives told the Wall Street Journal.
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.
"You may only request access to the Google user data that is necessary to implement existing features or services in your application", it continues. Frey urged Gmail users to peruse Google's Security Checkup tool, which outlines any non-Google apps that have access to your data under "third-party access".
In Google's case, outside developers must pass a vetting process, and as part of that, Google ensures they have an acceptable privacy agreement, The Journal reported, citing a Google representative.
The revelation comes at a bad time for Google and Gmail, the world's largest email service with 1.4 billion users.
In its blog post, Google is trying to portray itself as a company that isn't like Facebook that would give access of hundreds of millions of users' data to a random researcher. And once they've finished using the service, they may not remember that they gave a developer ongoing access to read their emails.
Companies must put pressure on developers to change their habits or policies on the data they access. In other words, Google can't do much for legitimate apps that you've given permission to.
"Before a published, non-Google app can access your Gmail messages, it goes through a multi-step review process", Ms Frey wrote.
Or look at permissions within myaccount.google.com under "Apps with account access".
If you want to take a look, navigate to "Google Account", which should be in the top-right section of your Gmail screen on desktop. "Google does little to police those developers, who train their computers - and, in some cases, employees - to read their users' emails", it said.
