Changed link in the first post :)

Filip
Hi Filip, the problem is back, as the link leads to an empty FAQ.
I'd suggest to either update the FAQ or unsticky this thread.

Cheers,
Asyn
Hi,

I'm not a mod anymore so can't really help you with that :(

Filip

Edit: To be clear, I'm kind of a half mod here, I can remove posts for example (I think), but can't edit them.
OK Fillip, so could you please forward it to the one in charge now..? Thanks.

Hmm, I don't see a complete breakdown of what all the permissions are used for.
Perhaps the link is down again?
I get directed to a generalized FAQ page that mentions a couple of permissions and why they are required  but not all.
I already understand what most of the permissions are used for except Bluetooth Admin.
What is this used for in the Avast app?

I guess my valid question does not deserve an answer.
Raises more questions.

A reworked FAQ article was promised a while ago.
Still waiting... :( :-\

Hi, sorry for the delay - there were some other priorities recently and it was hard to get this through, but we finally have the promised FAQ article. Find it on https://support.avast.com/en-us/article/Mobile-Security-permissions/
