Let's say an app doesn't require any permissions at all. What could that app access that could be a potential privacy risk? Other app usage? List of installed apps? Check is my screen unlocked? Google Analytics?

*Permissions do not define what all an app can access, which is covered in Irfan's answer. Also see Izzy's primer on permissions

  • App description of XPrivacy Lua, which is an Xposed module, to protect privacy. Information below can be accessed without permissions (readers are welcome to add)
  • Use analytics (Fabric/Crashlytics, Facebook app events, Firebase Analytics, Google Analytic, Mixpanel, Segment)

  • Usetracking ( user agent for WebView only, Build properties, network/SIM country/operator)
