10. Protect Android: Manage App Permissions

A benefit of downloading apps only from Google Play is that it will tell you which permissions an app requires before you install it. There is often a good reason for apps needing access to seemingly unrelated facilities on your phone, such as games that want to view your contacts (to allow you to compete against your friends) and messaging apps that want to access your camera (to allow you to send picture- and video messages). However, if you can think of no reason for an app needing a particular permission, don’t install it.
