    So apps that have access to the camera can take pictures? Imagine that.

    All you have to do is make sure you read the permissions from apps kids.

    Instagram can't do it. Probably some shady apps that can access your camera can. From what I understand from the source is that some apps can upload to a server, but it shows up in the permissions when you first download the app saying it has access to the camera on the device.

    We just need to get whatever apps are acting malicious off the Play Store. Instead of whoring for some clicks this scientist should have been contacting multiple developers and Google to get those apps off the Play Store if the problem is so bad.

    Its not a new flaw.. It already had in their operating system.



    This permissions are ideally framed for bug free experience. If you don't trust it than get privacy guard app and install app settings xposed module and revoke permissions. Google says this is for betterment of users and users are careless.
