After many attempts, we have finally gotten it into our heads that it is essential that we read the small print before we install any application on our devices. If it mentions anything that strays far from what the app is about (for example, a flashlight that tries to use your GPS) it’s best to ignore it unless you are completely confident in the product.
Just because an application requires a lot of permission to be installed doesn’t mean that there is anything to be concerned about but it should still serve as a caution. Luckily, the majority of people is aware of this and looks at the small print in detail, leaving cyber attackers to look for other ways to trap their victims.
