Why does the app ask for various permissions?

Before installing FullContact for Android App you will be asked to allow the app to have various permissions. Almost all apps need certain permissions to run on Android, which are used to run features in different apps. Please know that Android controls the way the permissions are named, therefore they sometimes might seem a bit confusing and even misleading.

Below is a list of the permissions we ask for with explanation of what we use them for. You might want to check this article on a regular basis to learn more about the changes in permissions.

In-App Purchases
To give you an access to our Premium features, FullContact uses Google Play billing services. Please know that you will never be charged unless you approve the purchase yourself.

Phone
FullContact needs your permission to call numbers directly via the app. Please know that no calls will ever be made without a direct action from you.

Camera
FullContact needs access to your camera in order to be able to take pictures of your business cards. Please know that you have full control over what pictures are captured.

Network
Access to the internet is required in order to provide successful sync, contact updates and other FullContact features. Please know that the network connection will only be used to help you be awesome with people.

Some contact data will be saved to your phone's storage in order to improve your experience while offline. Please know that no other data is ever touched by FullContact.
