  • Android App Camera and Microphone Permissions

    Under Android Phone Settings, Apps, Application Manager, INSTEON, Permissions, the application V1.9.6 asks for permission to use the phone's Camera, Location, Microphone, and Storage. I can understand the app requiring phone Storage. I can see uses for the app wanting know the phone's location. But I do not understand why the app needs access to the phone's camera nor microphone. I don't talk to the Insteon app on the phone. I don't want INSTEON to be able to here what I'm saying. Nor do I want INSTEON to be able to access my phone nor laptop camera.

    Is there a genuine reason for Insteon App requesting use of the phone's camera and microphone? I do not have an Insteon Camera in my system.

    Thank you.
