App permissions for Samsung galaxy

  SAM2006 20:47 20 Mar 2018

Hi I have recently tried to download an app I need and it's asking for access to my photos, files and media. As it's an energy company, I don't see why they would need access to these, particularly my photos so messaged them asking them why. They have replied asking for my phone make, model and OS. Sorry if this sounds a dumb question but is this relevant? I have searched your forums but couldn't find an answer. Thanks in advance for any advice. (I have a Samsung galaxy A3)

Thanks mrcalif �That makes sense now, although I haven't opted to submit meter readings this way so will take it up with the company. Your help is much appreciated!

It requires a within the app feature that wants to access your pictures and media on your phone such as Meter Readings.
