    Welcome to Android Central! Keep in mind that each permission can be fairly broad in terms of potential usage -- for example, in order for a flashlight app to work, it needs permission to use the Camera, since the LED flash is part of the Camera module. It doesn't mean that every single flashlight app is going to hijack your camera and take pictures without your consent.

    That's not to say that there aren't any apps out there that try to do shady things with your permissions, but if you follow some basic guidelines, you can keep yourself safe: [GUIDE] How To Avoid Malware - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
