Description

The manifest file only lists 3 permissions:

https://gitweb.stoutner.com/?p=PrivacyCell.git;a=blob;f=app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml;h=2196ce8678ca80f597832c44d66b9e244b7117ad;hb=6ee1470b74f7643f50bf7f1ebfdb578dcac829f2

But the APK ships with 5 permissions:

Beginning with version 1.4, ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE and WAKE_LOCK are being added at runtime by a dependency. There should be some way to figure out which one is doing this and, perhaps, turn it off.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

The permissions were added by https://developer.android.com/reference/androidx/work/package-summary, which uses them on API <23. They can be safely removed on Privacy Cell.

Fixed in commit https://gitweb.stoutner.com/?p=PrivacyCell.git;a=commitdiff;h=0797811d24cfaab7a49ec071c8a752e950213981.
