[Q] Why are App Privacy settings show different permissions than App Store?
I wanted to ask a question about the difference in permissions for an app that are shown on the Play store and in App Privacy area of the setting.
For example, when I downloaded Accuweather Platinum from Play store, I was told that the app will have access to Identity, Location, and Photos/Media/Files. For Identity, it further stated that it "uses one or more of: accounts on the device, profile data."
But when I go to Settings -> App Privacy -> AccuWeahter, I only see the permissions listed as "coarse location, fine location, vibrate, keep awake" and the check boxes are there to block either one or all of them (location, vibrate, keep awake.)
Can someone please help me understand how this works. Why did Google Play mention that app will have access to my identity information and if the app really has that access, why won't App Privacy allow me to restrict that access.
