Trello download permissions for my Google Drive looks dangerous.

I tried to attach a Google Drive file to one of my cards.
It seems scary that I have to give a permission for Trello to see and download my Google Drive files. Do I understand well?

Hi László,


Yes, this is the standard notification for many Power-Ups that connect your Trello account with other services like Google Drive. If you disable a Power-Up later, it will revoke the permissions granted.



Hi Blair,

Does it mean Trello can download any of my files from my Drive even those ones I didn't use with Trello?

Thanks in advance

@László Bővíz yes you're giving Trello access to Google Drive.

This is very unsettling though.  Why should I give Trello access to all my G Drive when there are only specific files which I want to connect with my Trello board? Is there any way to protect private files on my Google Drive from being accessed by Trello?
