Your Personal Information (PII)
Our Harbingers of Truth Radio iOS and Android App requires just 4 permissions:
* INTERNET - Allows applications to open network sockets.
* WAKE_LOCK - Allows using Power Manager Wake Locks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
* ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - Allows applications to access information about networks.
* READ_PHONE_STATE - Allows read-only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any Phone Accounts registered on the device.
The last permission can be a cause of concern or doubt, but this one's used just to terminate the sound from the app when there's an ongoing call.
