(Incomplete) List of Android app permissions requiring a privacy policy

Your app has an apk with version code xyz that requests the following permission(s): …. Apps using these permissions in an APK are required to have a privacy policy set.

This is a notification display in the Google Play Developer Console, when an Android app is requesting one or more certain permissions. Google states that every app that „handles personal or sensitive user data (including personally identifiable information, financial and payment information, authentication information, phonebook or contact data, microphone and camera sensor data, and sensitive device data)“ is required to have a „privacy policy in both the designated field in the Play Developer Console and … [in] the Play distributed app itself“ (Developer Policy Center)
 
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a list of Android permissions that trigger this statement, so here is an incomplete list of Android app permissions requiring a privacy policy:

  • android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS
  • android.permission.READ_CONTACTS
  • android.permission.CAMERA
  • android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
  • android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE

 
Please drop us a line at blog@onwerk.de if you have more permissions to add.
