    Permissions
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
    • view network connections
      Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.
    • prevent phone from sleeping
      Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
    • read the contents of your shared storage
      Allows the app to read the contents of your shared storage.
    • access precise location only in the foreground
      This app can get your exact location only when it is in the foreground. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them. This may increase battery consumption.
    • android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION
    • run foreground service
      Allows the app to make use of foreground services.
    • ask to ignore battery optimizations
      Allows an app to ask for permission to ignore battery optimizations for that app.
