Default [Q] Flashlight apps

About 2 years have past since a similar question was posted so here goes again;

Are there any flashlight apps that just turn on the LED without asking for all sorts of suspicious permissions like;

Network communication
view network connections
full network access
view Wi-Fi connections
receive data from Internet
Phone calls
read phone status and identity
Storage
modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
Your applications information
retrieve running apps
Camera
take pictures and videos
Development tools
change system display settings
System tools
modify system settings
test access to protected storage

I don't see it in my widget list. Is it a downloadable widget?

I use the xposed module that turns it on when you hold volume up while the screen is off, for me it's much more convenient than an app or the quicksettings widget.

It just needs camera permissions to turn on the flash
