Oauth Login requests 'offline access'


(Deron Jensen) #1

Hello.

I setup the Google Oauth2 login (this is amazing feature - thanks). However, now when users connect to the site with Google, they get asked to allow the Discussion board to “have offline access”. When says that the app can access the users account even when they are not using the system.

This does not seem right to me. Does the Discourse really need this, and is there a way to turn it off?

Thanks. I will check on this again. It may have been something that I was not doing correctly. Let me check through this again. Appreciate the help. I am sure I have something not config correctly. I am going to reset and try again.
