Let me tell you why they are asking for this access and why you should not worry about it.
TubeBuddy is an excellent tool with cool features and it can do many things to help you run your channel with ease but those things require access.
Giving the tool access is crucial if you want to use the tool to take greater control of your channel.
In the above image, you can see during integration it says TubeBuddy will be able to see, edit and delete your videos, so a question arises in mind.
No, TubeBuddy cannot permanently delete and edit your videos automatically which means it won’t do anything without your consent, it is mentioned just so the functions can be used.
I know it sounds like ‘TubeBuddy’ will automatically delete or edit your videos at will, but it is allowing you to do that function through TubeBuddy.
One of the biggest concerns some users have about TubeBuddy when integrating their YouTube channel or choosing the premium plan is that “Is my personal data safe & secure on TubeBuddy?”
The short answer is yes but to be secure, it’s your responsibility as well to keep your account login details confidential and not sharing it with anyone else. Besides that, be sure that only you’ve the access to your device.
- When choosing the premium plans of TubeBuddy, the payment information provided by the customer is collected but it is processed by a trusted company Braintree which is a PayPal company.
- Personal information such as the name and email which is collected while signing in with your Google account, this information is collected for identification and contacting purpose.
- TubeBuddy collects some other data including your IP address, the browser you use, and access times.
So with this information in mind about TubeBuddy, your personal data is safe.
In the online world, you are not always safe whether you’re using a tool, marketplaces or anything else.
It’s our responsibility to confirm the tool we’re going to use is safe or not, whether for our YouTube channel or website where we put a lot of hard work, time, and effort.
When it comes to TubeBuddy, it is an incredibly useful tool to grow the channel with ease but some people want to know “Is it safe?” and the answer is yes, it is safe as well as YouTube certified and can’t do anything such as deleting or editing your videos automatically.
