Had something to share

Post by MaxP » Sun Aug 11, 2019 7:18 pm

Hi!

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.

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.

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.

Thanks.

To get around this you will need to use the application password method described in these KB articles and modify your profile configuration to use App password (with 2-step verification):
