Oh I see, I was thinking it only revealed google accounts that were on the device. Yeah, it's pretty unnerving to know that it can automatically discover social media and other third-party accounts registered to the device like that. Thanks for taking the time to inform!
the.kuribo: I bought the bundle for The Last Express. I'm pretty oblivious with respect to Android stuff, can you clue me in to why allowing the app to "find account on device" is frowned upon?
ET3D: It's frowned upon because data mining is frowned upon. An app with these permissions can find out your Facebook, Humble, Amazon accounts, and it usually has no business doing that. Normally a game likely just wants to know your Facebook for integration, or something like that, but for many people (certainly on the GOG forum), Facebook integration would be considered a negative rather than positive feature.
