There are some IFTTT recipes that require a lot of trust.

Frankly, IFTTT is too new and I'm afraid to give it such extensive permissions.

Are there some reassurances that can calm my mind?

Do IFTTT take proper precautions to prevent abuse/misuse/hacking?

    How would we know? We've no idea how they've coded this stuff. All we have to go on is their public privacy policy.

  • @AlEverett - if I had asked the question about Google, there would be enough information "out there" to write a good answer. Now, ifttt is less than than Google, but perhaps someone knows something they can share about this (e.g. their core team is known to be privacy aware people, some blog post somewhere that investigated this issue, ... some piece of information)

  • Or perhaps an ifttt developer is reading this and would like to share some information about their processes. I sent them an email about this.
