Needs too many permissions. No.


Exactly, it's free because of all the data they sell stolen off your phone. It's amazing how many people don't realise that you shouldn't be downloading things with tons of permissions.

How do you know this? I thought apps on Google Play were safe?


Safe simply means it doesn't do anything without your permission. You agree to the app accessing your ID, number, call log, contacts, inside leg measurements, bra size, etc...

You agreed to it, so Google count it as safe.
Apple are no better, they just have a different process.

whats also amazing is how many people think its actually possible to code a decent app without so many permissions.

Most apps do not need my precise location, phone ID, contacts, make calls, redirect calls etc when they're actually just a torch, a calculator or a game.

There's many top games and apps that ask for almost nothing, it's not needed.
Contains ads plus in-app purchases. An obvious cold.

depends on multiple things like if there ad supported, what ad sdk they use if theres a license involved any form of a backup/restore system. Im a Java developer and a couple years ago got into Android development and while going through the official training exercises i found theres just not a lot an app can do without permissions. Using librarys is great and saves a lot of coding time but they usually come with the need for permissions azwell. Im not saying apps with loads of permissions are safe though, im saying think about why they might be needed or ask the app developer any decent dev will be happy to explain there apps permissions.

I know why they're needed... to sell on...

And any dodgy Dev will simply give you the same answers as the decent Devs....
Dodgy permissions for a game and iap range too high so cold for me

thanks for the information and the mountain of evidence that backs it up really appreciate it.

Didn't I tell you? I'm an expert in java, android, and on the tech desk of the FBI cybercrime unit?
True story.
Thanks for this. Just set it for download for my Shield and phone
If an app needs your Gallery permission it's usually because you can save pics/screenshots from the game. If it needs your Mic it's because you have an option to speak to it. Most permissions are asked because it needs it to run or you to communicate with it. Not because it wants to steal your data. Most android phones now ask for permission on an independent basis when the app needs access to something. Samsung's definitely do now, rather than just clicking accept to all it denys everything until it needs it. Dont worry about it. Google already has anything of importance about you anyway. Unless you are a wanted criminal or someone important your measly data won't mean poo to anyone.

Yep!, ANNOYING, huh?.

But for such purposes (in the past) I've ALWAYS either linked a PayPal account to my Google account (and 'unlinked' it accordingly!), and/or, I've linked it to one of my card's that I know are about to expire in just a few day's time in the future (after my initially 'linking' it etc that is).

And only day's after that infamous 11th hour has expired, I then start using such said App's to their fuller potential, etc? (knowing full well I'll never be bumped!), lol.

Even the free App's are linked via a currently then dead card. :-)

I only link it 'live' when I want to actually purchase stuff's off of there only! (and then it's PayPal only too, hehehe).

I then I unlink alllllll afterwards ...

Job done. :-)

cool story bro have a nice day.
Since Android 7 apps request access before actually accessing, so why worry so much? You can use Facebook messenger for example without giving access to the gallery or camera (to share/save pictures/videos) or microphone for video chat.

has it not always been 69p?

I've seen quite a few, including this one, which will not install without you giving permissions during the install process, so you can't install them and then block certain permissions before they get anywhere. Don't know if this has always been the case or if it a recent phenomenon to get round the rules...?

It's perfectly possible. If you root your phone you can actually con the app into thinking it's got permissions it doesn't and guess what - the vast majority still work fine. How could a game need permissions to your personal photo and contacts?
Ooh look, a Winter Olympics bandwagon deal!
