Berechtigungen

Why are the permissions needed?

These websites and their associated subpages are required for configuring and managing your e-mail accounts and for enabling access to your mailbox:
  • web.de
  • gmx.de
  • gmx.net
  • gmx.at
  • gmx.ch
  • 1und1.de
  • 1and1.com
  • uilogin.de (required for login with very old versions of MailCheck)
These websites and their corresponding subpages by Google and Outlook are required to configure and administrate e-mail accounts and to allow mailbox access to Gmail and Outlook:
  • google.com
  • mail.google.com
  • googleapis.de (login with Gmail)
  • google.de (.at/.ch/.co.uk/.es/.it/.fr/.pl/.ro)
  • accounts.google.com
  • live.com (Outlook)

Additional permissions that are required for using MailCheck in the browser:

  • Read your browsing history: Required to determine whether one of your mailboxes has already been opened in a tab. Afterwards, this mailbox will not be reopened in a new tab; rather, the existing tab will be brought to the foreground.
  • Display notifications: Required to display notifications about new e-mails. This function can be optionally (de)activated in the MailCheck settings.
  • Manage your apps, extensions, and themes: Required since GMX offers add-ons with similar or identical functions. To prevent conflicts between them, it must determine whether other add-ons are installed.
