When I download an app it asks permission for my accounts. What does that mean?
In order for an application to work as intended it has to access specific features from your phone and account. Let's say you download a messaging app, it will need to access your messages and related information. In order to do this it has to have your permission. Don't be alarmed these usually aren't harmful to be safe though always have a good mobile security app installed. It will alert you of any suspicious malware or anything of the sort..
