why does an app ( from google play) which just produces fart sounds ( just like 80% of the other apps) want permissions to access my browser bookmarks , call information, data store and what not
Yes, it seems like every single app now needs full control of our lives. I'm not happy about granting such sweeping powers where they are clearly unnecessary.
Except the apps from f-droid, for some dumb reason open source apps tend not to overreach on permissions and snooping.
Oh, but I guess now we can assume those are 33% malware since it's not the play store.
