Would you trust a 3rd party email app with your login details? Say cloudmagic? Thanks




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

If it potentially gives access to your emails and mailserver to a third party, then no I wouldn't trust it. I am surprised how many permissions some people give to some of these systems, perhaps they don't understand what they are doing.

No dont do it. Google and many other services provide a permissions system whereby they grant a certain app access to specific data (as agreed to you by you on the form) for a certain period of time. I think they issue a unique key to the app for this. Much safer.

I've used cloudmagic for quite a while and would never go back. I wouldn't want to give my details to other apps in the same way I do with cm. I've never been spammed or felt my info was bring used in the wrong way. I guess its a personal choice.
