In order for the Easy WP SMTP Google Gmail mailer to work seamlessly, a few permissions are granted by users during the Google Gmail mailer setup. This only applies to you if you choose to use the Easy WP SMTP Google Gmail mailer and its functionality.
Below is a list of Google permissions we ask for and what Easy WP SMTP uses them for.
Google Gmail API – gmail.send
Easy WP SMTP uses this permission to allow you to send emails from your WordPress site with your connected Google account.
Google Userinfo Email – userinfo.email
Easy WP SMTP uses this permission to display your email address in our plugin settings, so you know which Google account is connected to your WordPress site.
We also use this to enable Login with Google functionality, for security permissions retainment/enforcement, marketing new features/offers, and for ownership detail monitoring.
