According to my knowledge this problem not only happens in windows phone but also in android and IOS. I recently installed a bare bone news app which just shows the text and images related to a news from web with no audio/video news included and any other functionalities. But to install the app it requires my phones
owner identity, music library, phone dialer, photo library and other requirements
I have no idea why this app requires my music and photo library as well as phone dialer. Why these kind of apps require these permissions? If I accepted these requirements assuming the app maker has some dark ulterior motives, what kind of security issue can arise if I installed this app.
Because its asking for music,photo library permission, Can it upload my photos,music or other documents to a remote server without my knowledge?
