do you check the permissions of apps that you install?

for example the below are a SMALL selection of permissions for a popular WEATHER app!!


This application has access to the following:

  • Services that cost you moneysend SMS messages
    Allows the app to send SMS messages. Malicious apps may cost you money by sending messages without your confirmation.
    directly call phone numbers
    Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. Malicious apps may cause unexpected calls on your phone bill. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers.
