Why does SWA need access to see and download Google Drive files?

Question

Like many add-ons, the SEO Writing Assistant asks you to grant us access in order for SWA to function properly. This is particular SWA permission needs this as a workaround for several Google bugs.

Some of these bugs can actually prevent us from getting the content of these documents. In some cases, these bugs are 8 years old.

SEMrush does not access any of the files in your Google Drive except for the documents where SWA is explicitly activated. 

Please note that we do not misuse this data in any way.
