Android Permissions

Recently I had released an app into the Google Play Store. The app was a simple flashlight. When my brother called me up and said hey it is asking if it can use my camera and access the Internet. I was immediately ready to say you’re right why are you calling me. Then the whole problem dawned on me. My brother had no reason to understand why this application would need to access the Internet. The app is ad-supported which would explain why the app needs access to a network. This eventually got me thinking, he was better than most because he noticed what that app was trying to access. After this discussion, I decided to write a tutorial on android security and post it to the Principles of Tech website. I will post the URL to the article once I have completed it.
