Desactivate unused camera/wifi/etc. permissions for GDPR compliance


I’ve been surprised to see that when I build an Android app, all the following permissions are requested :

  • android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION,
  • android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION,
  • android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE,
  • android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE,
  • android.permission.CAMERA,
  • android.permission.FOREGROUND_SERVICE,
  • android.permission.INTERNET,
  • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE,
  • android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED,
  • android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW,
  • android.permission.VIBRATE,
  • android.permission.WAKE_LOCK,
  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE,

:arrow_right:The thing is : I don’t need many of those things, and the European legislation forbids to ask the user about access I don’t need. I guess the same may apply on Apple (but the builds keep failing because of Fastlane).

Hence, I must desactivate those permission requests, how can I do ?

Many thanks for your time and help.
