Issue with Evernote having access to my contacts when adding Google calendar

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm just curious if anyone is having issues with Evernote having access and the ability to delete your contracts and calendars as part of connecting Google calendar to Evernote.

this will allow Evernote to:

    See, edit, download, and permanently delete your contacts
    See, edit, share, and permanently delete all the calendars you can access using Google Calendar

Hi.  In the grand scheme of things it doesn't seem unusual or unreasonable.  Evernote needs this access to make the widgets work.  There are similar permissions for the browser clipper.  If you don't want to authorise the access,  you won't be able to use the widget.

It is a general access, that allows for all these actions - because Google has defined the API to be able to do all that.

The permission grant does not say EN is going to use all permissions - but the API does not allow for a more granular permission setting. So it is as @gazumped said: Take it and use it, or leave it.

In the end you only grant permission from one of your personal apps to another.
