Why this app is safe to use:
Is your Android device pre-installed with a barcode / QR code reader? Does it keep your privacy safe?
Open the app settings of your device or go to the Play store, and check the permissions required by other similar apps. You will realize that many of ordinary barcode / QR code readers require permissions like:
- Read your Web bookmarks and history
- Find accounts on the device
- Read the contents of your USB storage
- Read your contacts
This means that such apps have free access to private information. Your web browser history, friends info, or personal pics may be sent out secretly. How scary!
Green QR Code Reader was created initially to release its developer himself from such a fear. It only requires the permissions of camera for scanning and network access for ads. It never transfers your personal data.
