    Hello,

    I'm having a problem with Telerik Appbuilder with the android permissions in my Project Properties there are only 4 permissions turned on.

    COARSE_LOCATION
    FINE_LOCATION
    INTERNET
    LOCATION_HARDWARE

    So Why when I publish my Application using Desktop app builder does it report to google that it needs all of below.

    android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
    android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION
    android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE
    android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS
    android.permission.INTERNET
    android.permission.READ_CONTACTS
    android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
    android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
    android.permission.RECORD_VIDEO
    android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS
    android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

    There is no reason what so ever that my app needs 
    android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
    android.permission.RECORD_VIDEO
    android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS
    android.permission.READ_CONTACTS
    android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
    android.permission.RECORD_VIDEO
    android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS

    So Why is app builder enabling these? this just seems like Telerik are doing some borderline illegal snooping through apps built on there platform.

    Hello Martin,

    The additional permissions are probably required by the Apache Cordova plugins used in your app. If this is indeed the case, you can find more information about the issue in this forum post.

    I hope this helps.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
