If you have a Samsung phone, then you may have confused by an email that Google sent out regarding the Samsung Email application. Users told that the app, submitted through an “unverified developer,” was grant access to their Google account as well. And was authorize to “read, compose, send, and also permanently delete” any message within their Gmail account. The good news is that Samsung is aware of the issue and it is advising its customers to not act on the alert. In this article, we are going to talk about What is Samsung Email – Access to Google Account. Let’s begin!
Complaints have been collecting up in the Gmail Help community all day. Most of the commenters reacted through changing their passwords and revoking access for Samsung Email, we know simply as “Email” on Galaxy devices. Only to left with notifications saying that the application cannot access messages from a registered Gmail account. However, others questioned if the message was legitimate with a number of speculating. That the alert was part of an elaborate phishing scheme — one person referenced the same alerts going around for the Google Wallet application.
If you also got Google’s email about Samsung Email. Then a check on the permissions settings in your Google Account dashboard should verify that the alert is real. In nearly all of the cases we have able to find, many commenters said that the permissions grants from the very IP addresses of their Samsung devices.
More importantly, we called Samsung customer support and they told us that the company is aware of this issue and is working with Google to resolve it. The representative also suggests that the problem may be root in Google enacting a new security protocol. Again, we stress that users are also encouraged to disregard the alert.
We have also contacted Google for comment and will report back if we receive any. So you guys need to be calm about it.
