These are Gmail's new features

Later, Google said in a blog post that the company is continuously vetting developers and their apps that integrate with Gmail before it opens them for general access. Pretending that it is, though, is more like following someone else's prompt than genuinely responding to what The Wall Street Journal read in a letter Google sent to senators questioning the privacy protections afforded to Gmail users.

Google itself has mined users' emails since Gmail was launched in 2004, but announced previous year that it would stop the practice, amid privacy concerns and a federal wiretapping lawsuit.

Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 unveiled with triple camera, Infinity Display
For the Malaysian market, we are getting the 64GB storage model and you can expand its storage further via a microSD card. The main takeaway from the trio camera setup is the 8MP ultra wide lens which has "same viewing angle as the human eye".

Google has stated that it's fine with this, as detailed in a letter by Susan Molinari (spotted by CNN Money), who is VP of public policy and government affairs at the company. It furthermore claims that the collection policies of the app makers must be completely transparent and the software must first ask the user for permission to collect the data. "If we detect significant changes in the behavior of the app after it has been approved, we will once again manually review the app". And the company says that it makes sure that these policies are easily found by Gmail users so they can be reviewed by them before deciding to allow the information to be used.

To educate users, Google will serve up warnings when a third-party app is installed that'll indicate what data it seeks to obtain from your Gmail inbox, and if the app has been verified.

In some cases, developers of certain apps - for example trip planners - can be directly integrated with Gmail and granted access to utilize user data for their benefit (emails which show when you're going away, for example, in this mentioned case).

Next week, the tech giants, including Google, Amazon, Apple and Twitter will be addressing the Senate over increased concerns over online privacy and to examine the safeguards in place to protect consumers.

IPhone XS in UAE: Fans ready to shell out more
Last year, Apple went a step further by building a 5.8-inch OLED display for its tenth-anniversary iPhone , called the iPhone X. Cook thinks Facebook's Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal is so big that it warrants "well-crafted regulation".

"The privacy policy model is simply broken beyond fix". That suspension happens before any user data has been accessed in the "majority" of situations, apparently. It's certainly true that giving third-party software access to your messages can enable some useful functionality.
