    There are a lot of report about rouge apps gaining front camera permissions and spying on you. What do you use to guard yourselves about it ?

    Hmm i don't do anything differently, i make sure i check all the permission required by the app. If i really need to use the app, i do make use of the app with all the permission then i disable it manually. And i don't download and install .apk from third party website. For this i love iOS, it has many restriction and many apps won't be able to access many features.

    Have you installed Facebook ? It asks for almost all permissions.

    Certain apps like Facebook ask for all unnecessary permissions.

    Yes, the worst app is Shareit. It asks for Location, Bluetooth, and Wifi..

    Shareit & truecaller should be avoided in all instances.
