The Kindle app's latest update requests a new permission:
When I click for more info, it says:
Add or remove accounts, create accounts and set passwords, use accounts on the device
So I have a few questions:
Add or remove accounts
Allows the app to perform operations like adding and removing accounts, and deleting their password
Create accounts and set passwords
Allows the app to use the account authenticator capabilities of the AccountManager, including creating accounts and getting and setting their passwords.
Use accounts on the device
Allows the app to request authentication tokens.
1. What does it mean they can create accounts? Does that mean only with me entering the info? (Similar to when youtube asks me which account to use and I say "existing" and enter the info?)
2. Why would Amazon even need this?
3. Are there any risks?
