Screen displayed after allowing access to my Google account in a signup. Side note, I think the aspect ratio is off a bit.

This is an example of trying to be cute and helpful but actually causes me wonder if I made a poor choice to trust the application. Acquiring my photo is helpful and most sites do this after registration, but it isn’t sneaky.

Thank you for reading this short post. 🙂
