No registration is required and the app directly asks for permission to link your Gmail account. Once you grant the access, a page appears where you can click on the Build My Report button and wait.

The users can also remove authorization of the the app if they want, so that they don’t receive any emails in future. A mail with the process to uninstall is sent in the beginning itself.

Before undoubtedly concluding this article with a thumbs up, there is one concern that I would like to address. Since, the app is a third party and not affiliated to Google, I was a bit concerned about the security of my data in my email. The app requires access to all your data in the account to create a complete report. This can be a little concerning for some users. But, as the app is well supported by some big names, I went ahead and tried it out.
Also, even though it reports some good statistics, I wished it also reported things like largest emails, largest attachments, etc. I hope they add these statistics in future.
