I've noticed (by using XPrivacy) that many applications (and some that has nothing to do with location, such as TextSecure) require the following permissions:
Location: srv_listen Phone: srv_listen
(These permissions seem to be linked)
I failed to find any info on what are these permissions used for, neither what functionality may be harmed by blocking them.
I'd be glad if anyone here with some android programming knowledge can spill any light on it... What are they used for? What info may be accessed by granting those permissions? Is it actually providing any location info?
