Syncback losing access to Gmail

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Syncback losing access to Gmail

Post by RickyJack »

Just received an email from google saying that Syncback will no longer be able to access some data in your Google Account, including your Gmail content. If these apps are unable to meet the deadline to comply with our updated data policy requirements, they'll lose access to your Account starting July 15th, 2019. Checking my google account it shows that Syncback has access to Read, compose, send, and permanently delete all your email from Gmail as well as see and download all of your Google Account email addresses. It also says that this is an unverified developer. I use the feature to send myself log files for scheduled backups. Be nice to know if 2brightsparks plans to fix this.

I've received the same email and I would like to keep the email log setup that SyncBack Free provides. I tried setting it to another email account but it fails for some reason, so I'd prefer to use Gmail as it's my main account. Please, 2BrightSparks, make it so.

Hi,

We have already taken the necessary actions to address this issue and we are waiting for the approval from Google.

Thanks,
