Why did I get a 'Samsung Email was granted access to your Google Account' message?Click to Expand

Your Samsung device comes with a Samsung Email app which you can use to access emails from different providers such as Google or Hotmail, amongst others.

 

In order to use Gmail in the Samsung Email app, Samsung was required to register email client information with the Google server in order to be authenticated. This information was registered some years ago. Google recently changed their authentication policy and Samsung was required to update this client information in the Email app.

 

During this process, users who have set up Gmail on their Samsung phones using the Samsung Email app got an auto-generated notification from Google that stated 'Samsung Email was granted access to your Google account'. You do not need to take any further action.

 

You can review your Google account permissions at https://myaccount.google.com/permissions.

 

What if I revoked access and can't access my emails?

If you revoked access, you will no longer be able to send, receive or delete emails using the Samsung Email app as the app needs permission to access your Gmail account in order to do this.

 

If you revoked access and need to get back into your email account:

1. Open the Samsung Email app

2. You will get a prompt to sign into your gmail account. Enter your Google password. You do not need to change your password.

3. You will then be asked to either Deny or Allow permission. Tap 'Allow' to give the app access
