New permission: Access to account

Just logged in to Airdroid today via my PC and it came up with a new permission.

"Airdroid would like access to your account even when it is turned off"


Why is this needed?

Hi justinleeldn,
Thanks for your feedback.

This permission is for accessing the 3rd party account when you are signing to web.airdroid.com with it.

Feel free to contact us if you need any support :)

Would you please explain that answer?

What 3rd party account? What information is extracted from that account? How is it used? Why would a user be signing in to a 3rd party account through Airdroid at a time when he is not using Airdroid?

Thank you.

Hi AlanMeyer,
3rd party accounts are: Google account, Facebook account, Twitter account. You can choose to sign in via one of these accounts (An AirDroid account will be created when you sign in with 3rd party account for the first time).

We will get the profile picture, nickname, and email address when you sign in with 3rd party account:
e.g. sign in via Twitter

If you don't want to give us the permission on this, you can just create an AirDroid account.

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions :)
