While in my Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) account, I noticed the option to link an iNat account. I thought that would be cool to link ‘ALA me’ with ‘iNat me’.
However the last step of the process made me stop as I noticed the permissions it would give ALA within my account. Particularly “Create, update and delete your observations, identifications and other content on your behalf”.
That doesn’t sound like something I want to give ALA control over and I’m not sure why they need it??
I don’t mind the hidden coordinates etc etc, but the other doesn’t seem right.
I’m interested in other people’s thoughts here and I guess this is also a bit of a warning to other Aussie iNatters, be careful to read it carefully and not just click ‘Authorize’!
