Explanation of permissions:
✗ Your accounts (find accounts on device)
Required on devices with older Android versions to receive push notifications, as an existing Google account is required. With this permission it is only possible to query whether an account exists. The list of accounts found is not transmitted and the data of the accounts themselves are not accessible to the app.
✗ Storage (change or delete USB storage contents)
Is required to be able to cache data such as images on devices with little internal memory. For this purpose, the app only accesses the cache directory it has created.
Other data on the USB memory is neither read nor manipulated.
✗ System tools (disable standby mode)
This will make it possible in the future to wake up the device from sleep mode when you receive a push message.
✗ Hardware controls (control vibration alarm)
Optionally, the vibration alarm is triggered when the device receives a push message.
✗ Read Google service configuration
Required by Google for Google Play Services.
✗ Your location (Your location – Approximate (network-based) location).
Required for the optional weather module and/or FOCUS Local.
