Google says people want more control over what account data they share with apps, and the company is taking steps to make that a reality. Google plans to change the way developers will use its API for granting account access. Moving forward, people will able to grant permissions to specific data subsets, such as calendar and Google Drive, while denying access to others, such as Gmail. Apps will show users permission requests one at a time, within their own dialog boxes, rather than en masse on a single screen. People can then select individual pieces of information to share. Google says these changes will begin to roll out slowly over the next few months.
