I was going to install aptoide, but some of the permissions raised concerns for me. Why does is need my precise location, need to be able to add or remove accounts, create accounts and set passwords, find and use accounts on my device? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Aptoide is also an app store like Play Store which needs an account. This is like your Google account for Play Store. So it will have permissions (just like Play Store) for creating/modifying accounts (only for Aptoide). Location access is for viewing apps according to your location. Aptoide is safe but be careful with the apps downloaded from it.
Aptoide is safe however users upload apps to Aptoide's stores, any apps that you download from Aptoide should have a green shield with a check mark (meaning they have no viruses). If they do not, it means that they haven't been scanned for viruses.
I am using aptoide basically for searching an app that is not available in my country. But i heard that some paid apps are found freely on aptoide which is surely not a good option.
