I just published three apps, for example ASIN: B00PXHEGJQ ,
http://www.amazon.com/Kevin-Richard-Pastorino-Hebrew-Squares/dp/B00PXHEGJQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416788719&sr=8-1&keywords=kevin+pastorino When a customer comes to this page they see a section called "Technical Details/App permissions". Mine has three: •Open network sockets •Access information about Wi-Fi networks •Access information about networks This app does not need, ask for, or use any of these. I presume that it is a "web app" so Amazon attaches these requirements to it whether or not it needs them. Anyway it concerns me that most parents would probably not buy this app for their children because it looks like I am trying to get the Wi-Fi network location of their children. For example if they ride their bike to the neighborhood fast food for a shake it looks like I will be accessing information about the Wi-Fi network that they are on and perhaps trying to "pick up" one of the kids. Thanks, Kevin
Hi hellokevinpas, Yes, those three permissions are there by default for web apps and cannot be removed. Those permissions do not give information on the location of the device, but on the network state, such as whether there is currently an internet connection available, and if they are connected via wifi or a cell network. The sockets permissions is also required to properly use the network.
