Is this spyware?

I’ve been using this google sheets app called “GESI”

to make api calls to EVE online data base. one of my friends in the game asked me to teach them how to use it. After I showed him, he said this is spyware because of this:

I just wanted to ask here on the forums if I, and others who use this app, should be concerned about information from our accounts being skimmed by this app? Does this app allow someone else to read my characters mail?

Those are permissions to allow the app access to those, so you can read those or whatever gesi does, it gives the app access to jot that info down.

Just like if you downoad eve portal youll see similar permissions so you can read evemail from the app.


Yes. As well as your character‘s location, online status, killmails, market orders from the screenshot. The app could still be written in such a way that the third party operator isn’t actually doing anything shady but you have zero insight and zero guarantee.

This is probably why CCP Games is working on first-party integration with Excel.

We generally know better how to fit a Merlin than how to script code in this section of the forums. Ask there, there are the hackers :wink: : Third Party Developers - EVE Online Forums
