Question… Why are you getting the device name, ID, serial number and IMEI number of the device being used? Is there a reason you need to identify the exact device being used? It feels like WAY too much information needed for a church app. I have to track devices for my company app and I don’t gather that much information.

Hello @GaryH according to our country there are so many rules for company to be registered and all people who are registered in the company they should be recognized in everything in case there are some bad things be done then there should be a thoroughly followup.

Okay, but you are grabbing at least 4 identifying pieces of information about the device being used. I’m unfamiliar with the rules in your country, but it feels like overkill. IMEI is unique to a device, so is the serial number. The device ID can change on a factory reset, and the device name can be changed at any time (Heck I’ve changed half of them on the tablets I track). All I was saying is that it seems like more data than you actually need, and some of it is probably not very useful.

Not necessarily. I thought they were paying closer attention to certain permissions like the ones needed to collect that information. Looking at the other responses it may just be a mismatch between what you have indicated the app does and the permissions requested. I’d need more info and it looks like @Alapjeet is already helping.

You can’t even create an app with Kodular to be Default SMS handler but you declared it to be

So why they reject your app

I think if your are using activity starter, then you don’t need to declare this, because with activity starter you are redirecting the user to dialer and now it’s user wish if they want to use the dialer or not. Your app is not forcing them to call or use other dialer functionality. Hence it has no meaning to declare this about your app.

This is my point of view, other replies may differ.

Before you have to fill in declaration form what permissions are listed
