Permission management for Android

Change what permissions are needed

When you release your Android app, Expo will include a lot of permissions in the app by default.

And Google Play doesn't like this a lot :) 

Good thing is that you can control which permissions you need in app.json file. 

Read about this guide

To see how to set up the permissions you need.

SMS Permission

In Expo 30.0.0 the SMS permission is requested, which will mark your app as dangerous. 

In that case, it is recommended to set app.json permissions manually. 

Our new updates will be on expo sdk version 32.0 +. So the SMS permission will not be requested.
