The only reason I would see that  being okay (taking pictures without me pushing the “picture” button or collecting pictures I had taken) would be with a tracker app that you initiate when your phone is stolen.

Wow I had this exact conversation with Fiance a few days ago! I recently got a android and tried downloading some nice wallpapers and games only to find that they wanted control over taking photos, recording videos at random… seriously creepy!

Where is this information when you download the app?

I would do some research and make an attempt to contact someone.

I’m pretty sure something like that falls under voyeurism and is no more legal than sticking your cellphone up some girl’s skirt and taking pictures.

When I read that the first thing I thought of was the fact that I leave my phone on the dresser a lot. This usually gives my phone a front row seat during sexy time…..

*logs off to go check phone and apps*

I’m a cyber security student and we are currently working on a community service project, which will be an informative video for middle-school and high-school age students warning them about various threats on the internet.

These apps mean serious business when you give them your info.  No game application should need your contact list.
