“Sparrow.app” would like to access your contacts.

    Why does this popup every time I start Sparrow? Any idea how to disable it, it gets really annoying.

    (I have no contacts in my Contacts anyway)

    Sparrow 1.6.4 on Mavericks, Macbook Pro Mid 2009

    It probably wants to access your address book for something like an auto-fill feature.

    Have you just said yes? Since you have nothing in there, it’s not going to hurt anything.

    I've tried both options, but I still get the same pop-up the next time I launch Sparrow.

    Unchecking Sparrow in the Privacy Settings seems to have solved the issue:

    That's not a good solution!

    If you do that sparrow can't access your contacts anymore so it has only the old emails you already used, but if you add new contact it won't show on sparrow.

    Does anyone have another solution?
