Why do I need to authorize Witnesser to access my data on Gmail ?

In order to use Witnesser with Gmail, you will be redirected to this window.
This is normal, and it is necessary for Witnesser to work.
Witnesser needs to be able to access your data on Gmail to be able to certify it.
For Witnesser to be able to certify that some email was at some point on Gmail, Witnesser needs to be able to communicate directly with Gmail on your behalf.
By granting Witnesser access to your data, you are effectively enabling Witnesser to see what you are able to see on Gmail. This in turn enables Witnesser to certify the email you want.
This is illustrated by the process below :
What will Witnesser do with my data on Gmail ?
Witnesser will only use your data in the following way :
  • read the data you ask it to read while browsing to select the email you want
  • save the email you ask it to witness, on its own server
No data from Gmail will be used for anything else.
Everything you do using Witnesser is strictly confidential and won't be shared to anyone by Witnesser.
Can I revoke Witnesser's access to my data ?
Yes.
Anytime you want, with instantaneous effect, you can revoke Witnesser's access to your data, on Gmail's access revocation page.
