It's like the plumber saying he needs the key to your front door - but without the reassurance that you know who the plumber is and where to find him if your diamond tiara goes missing.
I have a crappy Vodacom tablet; to read sms'es, I need to start an app (makes sense) and it insists on permission to access my images (WTF).
And I bet it doesn't tell you what it is going to do with your images
And the whole thing is a crock of sh*t because they never tell you why they need a particular permission or what they are going to do with your device or your data.
I deleted the App and changed my phone number.
Zuckerberg has you.
Is he also "WhatsApp" ?He can call me all he likes on the old phone number that no longer works ...R
You will be amazed.
