OAuth is an authentication protocol used by Shift, and most well-known and respected applications that require access to your third party accounts. Essentially, it is the security measure that allows you (as the customer) to approve the interaction between the application you want to use, without actually giving away your password, and your third party accounts - in this case Gmail (Google). With so many new applications on the market, OAuth plays a very important role in providing assurance that your passwords, and the information they protect, are safe and secure.
