Only applies to Hiiker Android version 3.57 and older released in mid-July 2021.
Simple reason for this, in order to update the app and trail data at the right time, we need access to “READ_PHONE_STATE”, so we know not to try and update if you have terrible signal. Without this we need use less specific means of know your internet connection quality. The app will work without this but may try to update at inconvenient times that may cause problems.
We never make a phone call, we never read phones calls you have made, we never do anything with this other than whats stated above.
