    Gmail wants access to my phone logs.

    Advertisement



    I wonder why Gamil wants to access my phone logs and other user data, I said no when BB promted me to grand permission to gmail, and it started to throw exceptions. I had to reinstall Gmail and grant it permissions it was seeking. I am not a paranoid kind, but I am wondering how safe is it to grant gmail access ? I am sure its calling back home and transmitting my personal info on my BB8800, but I dont want it to transmit my calender info, coz I have some sensitive info on it. Anyone with more knowledge of how BB OS works & Gmail works please advice.

    google is the king of trying to track your whole life. not sure what they need to keep all that data for. it makes me uncomfortable.

    have you seen their new search history thing? it's kinda scary

    It's not really trying to access your phone logs. It's either how the app integrates into the BB or how the BB apps permissions work. If you don't grant it access you'll experience exactly the errors you're running into.
