Trello on Android

Get Trello in Google Play: Trello for Android


Trello for Android requests the minimal set of permissions required to operate properly. Unfortunately, Android's permission system makes applications request everything at once which can be off-putting to our users and us.

These are the permissions Trello for Android requests, and why:


We use this permission to let you quickly login into Trello using your Google account.

There are some syncing actions that we perform in the background which require this permission. For example, we sync cards assigned to you periodically so that we can make sure to show you reminders for cards due soon on time. 

Additionally, when you are offline and create a card we save it and execute the actual creation when your data connection is restored.

This permission does not let us read any of your passwords or credentials.
