PayPal App

Hi,

 

I wanted to use my PayPal account from my Android powered Testra Smart Touch 2, and had to download an app from Google Play. But to do so apparently required my giving a long list of "permissions" that pretty much gave them complete remote control over my phone, even including being able to take and transmit photos and video from my camera!! I decided not to download the app.

 

Can anyone explain this strange situation? Is it really wise to download an app like that?

 

Cheers,

Tim

Re: PayPal App

the PayPal app is fine, I think the big brother aspect comes from Google themselves from what I've been hearing lately, you might find this applies to a lot of apps now
