  • Priority changed from 2.x to 3.x

It might be possible to accomplish this without invoking the READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission by using an intent to pull data from another app on the system (like a photo gallary). Otherwise, I would rather wait until more users have API >= 23 before enabling dangerous permissions.

It turns out it is possible to enable file uploads on API >= 21 without requesting the READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE dangerous permission.

Implemented in commit https://git.stoutner.com/?p=PrivacyBrowser.git;a=commitdiff;h=7aacd0e844f74925ddbd278c567d17da79775a67.
