All popular apps need access to some of a smartphone’s features in order to fulfill their functionality and provide a relevant user experience.
It’s standard for Android devices to notify the user when an app asks to do something that might be especially important. These notifications let the user know how an app operates behind the scenes — is it using the microphone, the camera, the location? You can always grant or refuse an app’s permission to access those features.
Our app only requires that users provide a valid phone number to order a ride. It doesn’t need personal information like name, birthdate, or passport number. It only asks to use features of your smartphone that will bring you a more enjoyable experience and maximize the quality of our service.
The table below explains the different kinds of Android permissions our app might ask for. You’ll notice we don’t ask for access to your calendar or email — only to things that will make it easier for you to use the app. If you don’t want to grant a certain permission (or any permission at all), you can simply refuse. The app will still operate and you can place an order for a ride normally.
