** Why does Scope require write and read permissions?

We need these permissions because we can't give you the metrics without these permissions. The OAuth protocol on GitHub is not granular so we can't read the data without them.

If you have concerns about security, don't hesitate to read our security page, terms of use and privacy policy to be sure that we don't use your data in a wrong way.
