Be careful of granting sensitive permissions to new apps

Many apps — even well-known ones — ask for a long list of permissions when they’re installed. This can include location data, camera access, your email information, and other potentially sensitive permissions. Be wary of what you grant access: An image-editing app probably doesn’t need access to your emails to function. Note that location data is a permission that is almost always optional, so it’s unlikely any apps that ask for it need it to function properly. If an app is asking for too many permissions, consider looking for an alternative that might not need to access so much of your information. In any case, it’s important to read through the list of permissions an app is asking for and think carefully about whether granting them is needed.
