    Lightbulb App Permissions



    I just came across an informative article that discusses permissions required by various apps and what they mean. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but the following common permissions are discussed:

    • Services that cost you money -- make phone calls
    • Services that cost you money -- send SMS or MMS
    • Your personal information -- read contact data
    • Your personal information -- read calendar data, write calendar data
    • Phone calls -- read phone state and identity
    • Your location -- coarse (network-based) location; fine (GPS) location
    • Network communication -- full internet access

    Hit the source link below to check it out. Protect yourself from being taken advantage of by malicious app developers.

    For an app that de-mystifies all those permissions for you, check out this thread. Pocket Permissions is an app that was developed by a member of our own extended Forum Foundry family from our sister site, Android.net.
