Google tells Congress it continues to allow developers to scan, share Gmail data

Sept 20 (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc’s Google told U.S. senators that the company continues to allow developers to scan and share data from Gmail accounts, according to a letter made public Thursday.

Google defended its privacy practices for Gmail, the email service used by 1.4 billion people around the world, telling senators that developers may share data as “long as they are transparent” with users about how they are using data and get consent.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by David Shepardson)
