I was wondering what the different permissions of the Security app (Android) are used for.
I mean, it has asked me for the
camera-permission in order to scan the QR-code.
It has also asked me for the
location-permission, but I am unsure what this is used for exactly.
Definitely for the Geofencing, but since it already asked for that before I even touched that feature, I am wondering if it asked it for a different reason as well?
But it seems to be working well without the permission granted anyway.
storage-permissions it asked me for at the appropriate time as well, and are easy to understand why it is needed.
Then, I also saw it has the
telephone-permission, but it (luckily) hasn’t asked me for it, but I can also not see a reason for this permission. But I do wonder why it is there.
There are also Advanced permissions which the app hasn’t asked me for and so are both set to
Yet I do wonder, why it is there. These permissions are:
- Display over other apps, and
- Modify system settings
Nothing to do with paranoia, just curious about this. Wondering if they are (to be) used for a feature (still in development). Or if setting some of these to allowed makes for a smoother experience.
