I denied "Contacts" perm of obvious reasons for an app. It won't work. I reached its developer and he said I am paranoid, that "Contacts" means just basic info about phone owner, like name and email, not contact list. But it says "Contacts", not "Basic owner info". Who is right? How to give app "Contacts" permission but hide contacts list from it?
Who is right?
I think you are right because "Contacts" permission - quote:
Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
You can write an abuse to Google about this application if you think they use "Contacts" permission unreasonably and Google may check that application more accurately.
