The Privacy Friendly Torchlight application uses the smartphone’s flash light in order to provide the functionality of a simple torchlight. It belongs to the group of Privacy Friendly Apps.
In the following points the Privacy Friendly Torchlight App differs from other similar apps:
- Minimum amount of permissions
In category "Camera/Microphone": CAMERA
This permission is required to control the smartphone’s flash light (on/off).
Note: Another permission exists, namely: FLASHLIGHT. But this permission is not enough, to control the LED of the smartphone. Therefore, in fact, the permission CAMERA is needed, which implicitly allows the access of the FLASHLIGHT permission.
- No advertisement
Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising which also shortens battery life.
