It might sound liek a great idea to let an app have access to your email account but we wouldn’t recommend it.
There are some apps that would love to scan your email account for purchases or travel plans you’ve made. Are you starting to get worried?
These apps will then happily sell your private data. You shold be getting worried now!
Even if the authors of these apps are entirely trustworthy, would you still run the risk of having your personal data sold on.
We should all have learnt the lesson with the recent Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal.
DON’T DO IT!
Don’t allow ANY app access to your email account. It’s not worth it.
There’s an interesting article relating to this sibject on the How-to Geek website
