Why check Application Permissions before Installing?

by Alen Parker Professional Guest Blogger

The web application or mobile application, both are an inclusive part of business development and make up a large part for the business success. A good build and effective application can bring early and better business popularity and viability for reaching a large number of relevant customers. On the mobile front before installing the application a permission note is mentioned on the screen, and only after accepting app permission we will be able to download it. More often, we just ignore the permission and abruptly just accept it without reading them.

Android is considered to be the target for malicious attack, thus it should be a perfectly analyzed before downloading. The android app development company should make sure to bring a better and secure version of the application. Moreover, this is a popular mobile application that further makes it a target for the hackers to get into your phone. So get into the app permission section and make sure to completely read and analyze it before accepting the required app permission.

Some lure you to offer free ringtone and other free samples but remember nothing is free in this world. The secret code accidentally enters your phone with it, and we think that maintaining security is the part of the Android app development company, they should maintain it. But in reality, we have given the path to the attackers by the permission acceptance when we install the application. It opens up a path for the attack. Thus get into depth and pay attention to the permission.

What is application permission?

These are the app permission that is asked by the application before being installed. Remember the square permission box that appears on your screen before the application starts installing. These sometimes abuse and ask for more permission than required for functioning.

Why we need application permission?

The android application development company asks for application permission because of safety reason.  The permission is allowed to make the access secure, it partitions the user data for each application. These permissions are mandated by the Android app development company if we choose not to allow the app to refuse to install. But the whole question is do we need all the permission for app access? Many applications require a large number of app permission, but it doesn’t mean we need to risk our mobile device for these APIs.

So, what’s the solution?

The app requires permission, but we can’t allow every permission and cause a risk for our device security. So, consequently below we discuss the following precaution that needs to be seen before giving app permission.

  1. Watch notes and comments: Always check the app rating and review of the application on the Google play store.
  2. Check the requested permission: Check and analyze the app permission that is required for installing the application.
  3. Sensitive permission: Always check the sensitive app permission such as telephone or message access.

Conclusion: We have seen that application permission is an important part and should be analyzed and then permitted. These permissions are the main source for hackers to bring the malicious attack to your device. Thus make sure that the app permission accepted by you is genuine and cause no harm to your mobility device.
