eWeLink App Permissions Explained

When installing eWeLink app on your phone or update a new version, it requires certain permissions in order to function on your phone. For example, the app might need to use your phone’s camera, or track your location. You can view and manage the permissions and choose which one to grant. You might worry about your privacy and data and hence deny some permissions, which may affect normal usage of some functions. So it is very important to learn about these permissions. Below we’ll introduce you all the permissions eWeLink app asks for. Please note that once you have denied these permissions, related functions will not work.
