Is That App Giving Away Your Privacy?

Be careful when you install apps on your mobile device. Many apps want more permissions than actually needed for their function. For example, some flashlight apps want access to your contacts. Why? Usually for marketing purposes to build a better profile on you and your friends. Don't install apps that require excessive permissions.

Also, always install apps from a trusted source. This helps ensure the app isn't fake or malicious.
