Google is misleading people about “we don’t read your email”

Google has been a little more careful than Facebook when it comes to protecting your privacy. For example, the company stopped using contents of user emails on Gmail to personalize its ads back in 2017.

But if you’re not careful about granting permissions in Gmail to third-party apps, your emails could still theoretically fall into the wrong hands. To check which third-party apps you’ve allowed to access your Gmail, go to myaccount.google.com and click on “Apps with account access.”
In the post, Frey also points out that “no one at Google reads your Gmail.”

Source: Google says no one is reading your emails, except…

Except for artificially intelligent software systems that are, in fact, reading and interpreting your emails and creating databases of information based on the email content.

This is easily proven as I show in this post and is documented in their privacy policy (a.k.a. anti-privacy policy).

Technically, they are correct that “no one [humans] at Google reads your Gmail” – they have offloaded that task entirely to AI software systems that simulate humans reading your email.

Google argues that it discloses this in its privacy policy. However, Google also scans email that you receive, sent to you by people who never consented to Google reading their email.
