App permissions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been asked by a senior member of the IT department to explain why the Hornbill app needs access to each of the things shown in the attached image. I have been unable to find any answers on the wiki or in an existing thread. Please, can you let me know here?

Many thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

Most of them are self-explanatory apart from Device & App history, not sure why we would need that to be honest.  

Identity - we use the basic info like name/handle when connecting

Location - we support location tagging with the "Check-in" option

Photos/Media - Hornbills rich content allows for adding images, videos etc, we need access to those files in order to let you post them

Camera - same as above

Device ID - we use this to identify the device when its registered against your user account

Hope that helps. 
Gerry

The 'Device & App History' permission on the Hornbill App is to allow access to the 'retrieve running apps' function.
I would assume that is to ensure that the app reactivates itself if it's in the background rather than creating a second instance.
