Re: Well colour me surprised.

You know you have to sign up ("connect") to these 3rd party services right?

Don't associate your account (which of course needs a sign in) and you have nothing to worry about.

This "news" days more about brain-dead cretins that just click any old prompt thrown at them, rather than Google or 3rd parties using its API.
