New Permissions in App Update

Just wondering why the latest update to the Patreon app wants access to my Device ID and call information. Current permissions for the app include Photos/Media/Files, Camera and Wi-Fi connection information.

Hey Ruby,

Are you on the Android app? If so, we added a phone permission in order to pause audio playback when calls come in. Iā€™m assuming iOS has a similar requirement of us as we upgraded our audio experience.

Thanks for the information - yes, on Android. I am wary of excessive permissions.

Hey Ruby,

I would recommend shooting a note to the support team for questions like this. The community is specifically for questions directed at other creators.

Here is a short form you can fill out that will get sent to our support team. :slight_smile:
