Have you ever noticed that when you install an app on your Android device it requires you to give it permission to access some information on your device. You have no other choice, you have to allow the app to access the information it is asking for in order to use it.
This might be a little annoying and unsafe in the same time because developers can use this and can steal your data, information and so on since you granted them permission to do that. However if you be careful and install apps only from Play Store and navigate only on the sites who are safe then you will be safe also.
But if you download and install any kind of apk file you find on the internet and don’t pay attention to the permission than you may be at risk. There is no sense for example and app who is related with pictures to access your contacts. If you install an app and you see a permission which may not be related to the app function you can easily disable it.
