What “Microsoft apps and services” is, and how it enables connection to your email accounts

Microsoft apps and services is a common authentication app which connects multiple apps and services across Microsoft with your email providers. We do this to keep your experiences consistent across different Microsoft applications you connect to. We ask for your consent to connect with each of these Microsoft applications, and allow you to securely authenticate and connect your email account to supported Microsoft applications. For instance, when you connect your Gmail account to Outlook or Cortana, the “sign in to continue to” name says “Microsoft apps and services”.

Some Microsoft products use the same Google authentication key to connect with your Gmail account. When you connect with your Gmail account, we store and protect the data you consented to provide us from Google. Depending on the product you connect with, this can include:

• Your basic profile information (Name, Email address, Birthday, Country).

• Emails you send and receive on Gmail.

• Your existing and new contacts.

• Your Calendar events

• Your Google Drive files
