Gmail Account in Z3
« On:October 28, 2015, 11:26:19 AM »
I have few observation regarding [Main menu->Email->Google]
1. Setup up your google account first time
2. Next approval screen it shows "Tizenxxxxx.gmail.com" want to access your all gmail profile data..blah blah"  :'(
a) "why tizen.xxxx.gmail want to access my gmail xyz details"
b) after account set up is successful, all mail syncup was proper. But I got a email from "no-reply@accounts.google.com"

saying

" Sign in attempt prevented" someone just tried to sign in to your google account from an app that doesnot meet modern security standard. we strongly recommend that you use a secure app like gmail to access your account...........blah blah"

 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

please someone comment and let us know why is this?

you are going to access your gmail via email app on tizen phone.. so that app need some permissions to allow you to view, delete, send emails.. and i think you denied the access, so got the email from gmail.. that someone "blaah blaah....... "

This is not a problem , If you try to use any other email client / application ( other then Gmail) it will ask for permission since it is not Google Native email client.

Que a) "why tizen.xxxx.gmail want to access my gmail xyz details"

< Ans > This is the email client of the Tizen phone which is trying to access your gmail data
because user of the client that is you want to set it up.

About Modern Security Standard take it with 2 tonnes of Salt ( not a pinch)  ;D ;D ;D

We are really not sure how secure is Gmail app and similarly  they  have no way to know how secure are others so it's best to flash a warning to show disclaimer.

b) after account set up is successful, all mail syncup was proper. But I got a email from "no-reply@accounts.google.com"
<Ans>  Since Google has no way to know if you have deliberatly set up Tizen Client of someone else is trying it so it is sending you customary warning message.

Although I don't suspect Tizen/Samsung to be breaching your data, there's an alternative you may opt other than adding "Google Account" to Z3 for accessing emails.

The alternative is to use Gmail as IMAP email account:
1. Enable IMAP on Gmail: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings/fwdandpop
2. On Z3, Settings -> Accounts -> Add account -> Email -> Type your email address & password -> Done

Z3 will automatically setup your Gmail mail account with IMAP & won't ask for any permissions.

Cheers!

this email was received because I accepted/allowed the app for the asked permissions.

Yes but I hope you now understand that mail is just a warning against some client unknown to google and not a real concern.
