wallabag for Windows does not collect any personal information nor information associated with your wallabag account. wallabag for Windows is a third-party application accessing the public wallabag API.
In case the application crashes, wallabag uses HockeyApp to track the crash log. The log contains information like date, crash data or country. This data has the solely purpose to help analyzing the crash and therefore finding a solution. By default this is disabled, you can select for yourself if you want this feature enabled. It won't affect the experience in any way.
wallabag for Windows is using the current API model (version 2.2) of wallabag. The way of authentication works the following way:
- You enter your credentials inside the app
- The app submits the credentials to the provided wallabag instance
- by default the credentials are submitted via HTTPS
- If the certificate is invalid or HTTPS is not supported, HTTP is used as fallback. In this case the credentials are readable by everyone who listens to the network connection.
- The wallabag instance sends back an access token, which is used for later connections
As a result, your username and your password are not saved in any way, only the anonymized access token is used for later authentication.
