@SpenBennett Glad you're enjoying Shift so far, and thanks for your questions. Our customers' privacy and security is a very important topic! We ensure that all information and data that goes through Shift (often referred to as network traffic) is encrypted. All emails, contacts and messages are stored locally on your computer, which means that none of your information is shared with any third-parties.

Finally, Google grants access to your account(s) using OAuth. This authentication happens directly between you and Google. Shift in no way intercepts or tampers with this process.

As for the integrations you mentioned, you can access all of your Google apps directly through Shift. If you are in Drive, and click on the 'My Drive' dropdown for that account, you can then switch over to Docs, Sheets, or Slides or connect other apps directly.

Hopefully this helps! Please feel free to reach out directly at any time as well - we are also available through [email protected] for support.
Pretty happy with it so far. I am curious what your security protocols are to ensure user's information is safe and remains private. I would like to use this with my enterprise Gmail account, but there is no information to indicate if it complies with our security standards at the University.
