Good heavens. Someone might be stealing all my opportunities to get millions of dollars for free.

If you've given a 3rd party apps access to your email then yes.

Then that's for the user to take up with the 3rd party not Google.

In some cases you, the user, voluntarily grant access to a third party application to read your email. Ex. If I grant Tripit access to my email to automatically pull email related to a trip I just booked, then it has access to read my email, and depending how the application is developed (if it is secure or not) the developer could be pulling all of my email to read for his/her personal pleasure.

Its a trust decision by the end user whether to grant access (I personally don't do that) but by no means is it big brother Google purposely granting access to your emails without your consent, this would be something you signed into and it popped up with that box asking if you want to grant permissions and you, the end user, said yes to that. You can go in and revoke in anytime.

I don't see the issue here.

If we go from the premise that 'everything' on the net. is open to third parties .since that weasel Zuckerberg first sold FB info to the US Government..Then this should not be a surprise. i have used WhatsApp since it started, not only because its free, but because it had an encrypted system... Horrified to learn that the promise made by Google,when they bought it two years ago , has already been broken. YEP. broke the encryption 'sold the info. You can almost guarantee that if it's a US owned company ,they will be out to make extra money from it, and b****r ethics
