Developed a decade ago, Email has been the standard interactive platform now. Today, almost every digitally connected individual uses it to communicate not just in his/ her personal but professional life as well. As per the reports collected by Trend Micro Support researchers, Gmail is one of the most famous email services available nowadays. This Google’s offering is used by 1.4 billion people worldwide.
Now, the thing to concern is that many users of this platform are connecting it with some third-party or malicious apps. And these suspicious applications may expose the private email messages. Recently, the Wall Street Journal offered a report displaying that the users who link their accounts to the third-party apps innocently permit the external developers to go through their Gmail messages. For having a mirror-clear view of this report, contact the Trend Micro Technical Support professionals.
Now the question that strikes in minds of my, your, or other people is ‘how could the developers get access to users’ personal inboxes? The fact is, according to its official policy, Google lets these app developers scan the private inboxes of users. This policy is sketched when the user is asked – if he/ she wishes to link their Google account with third-party apps & services. At the time of connecting the account to service, the user is asked to grant some permissions that contain the ability to ‘go through, send, manage and delete your email’. The previous CTO at eDataSource Inc., Thede Loder told that today, penetrating into and going through the users’ private emails has become a “common practice” for the firms that gather this kind of data.
As per the Trend Micro Support techies – the CTO also said that users consider it to be a dull secret but it is the reality.
However, this news may not be surprising for the several IT professionals and people such as Loder but it is very much surprising to the common users. This, in turn, proves that there is a wide gap in awareness about ‘what the Gmail users are logging themselves in?’ Thus, if you are a Gmail user and having the desire to maintain the privacy of the emails exchanged via your account, take a peaceful breath. This is because now the reliable Trend Micro Customer Support techies are here with the excellent tips to help you in keeping your email messages private.
Effective Tips to Keep Your Emails Private
Be Cautious: The best tactic to maintain the privacy is to keep track of and control where your emails go. This is possible by lessening the sources with which you share them. This means that you should not provide Gmail access to each app that requests for it. Be careful, diligent, and strict and allow the app to have the access only when it is important. Trend Micro Support technicians can help you in differentiating between vital and fake apps.
Go through the terms & conditions: Do you want to share your Gmail account or the information it holds with a website or an application? Ensure reading all the terms and conditions related to the matter with great care. Though this task may seem boring yet it is important. It allows you to have clear ideas of where and how your information is used. Having difficulty in understanding any term, make it easy by contacting Trend Micro Technical Support techies.
Use Comprehensive and Robust Security: Though such data was freely given, yet it is vital to provide your devices with an additional layer of security in order to keep your info safe. To do this, you have to select and install a comprehensive protection suite such as Trend Micro Antivirus.
