Google lets people connect their account to third-party email management tools, or services such as travel planning and price comparisons.
Despite assuring users to "remain confident that Google will keep privacy and security paramount", the search giant is still reportedly allowing third-party app developers scan through Gmail accounts, the Wall Street Journal has claimed.
The feature was finally dropped a year ago, in a move welcomed by privacy advocates, but it turns out employees of third-party app developers may well have been reading your private messages.
Company computers, which scan some 100 million emails a day, were "trained" by workers who personally read thousands of emails.

One such company is Return Path, which collects data for marketers by scanning the inboxes of more than two million people who have signed up for one of the free apps in its partner network using a Gmail, Microsoft or Yahoo email address.
Google "does little to police those developers, who train their computers - and, in some cases, employees - to read their users' emails", the Journal reported. Consumers' reaction is becoming a major challenge for tech companies as they face lawmakers, lawsuits and the threat of regulation over data policies they say they've been telling us about all along.
You may need to research each individual program or service to make an educated decision.
As per the report, Return Path Inc.is one of the said companies which Google allowed.
Although Return Path declined to comment on details of the incident, it did say it sometimes lets employees see emails when fixing problems with its algorithms. However, installing them hands the app developers.
