Why is this marked as a solution? U get some kind of better ratings? "No known work arounds" is not a solution . Therefore its part of the problem.
As IF anyone from samsung (lower case S) is even going to be ALLOWED to post a solution.
This app obviously violates our privacy forcing us to provide access to our contacts and phone without our concent and any business reason.
Please, a least, respect us and do not mark this question as solved since you haven't provide any solution. This request to accept this solution is ridiculous.
I'm very disappointed with Samsung and its forum moderator.
This is not a solution. Rather, Samsung admits the offense. I have stopped using Samsung apps, never consent to Samsung accessing contacts, and never use the Galaxy store.
At this time the permissions would be required in order to use the app. There are no known work-arounds that I could offer. However, I appreciate your feedback and will tag it on the forum so that it will appear with other feedback, ideas, and requests. This will allow your post to be more easily found in the event that Samsung product groups are seeking outside feedback/requests/ideas regarding our products.
There is no way the forum has anyone who agreed this is a solution
You all make phones freaking expensive and customers invest for their security not to be breached by the thieves like Samsung. I am going to ensure the theft is made public.
No way an app store, default with my purchase of phone should have or need access to my private information.
I have software updates that I cannot install because I cannot access the Galaxy Store.
I will not approve permissions to Contacts on my phone. Shame on you for even asking.
This weakens the value of my Samsung phone and makes me likely to avoid the brand.
I couldn't agree more, I'm terribly disappointed in Samsung. Explain to me why you need access to my contacts so I can use the Galaxy Store app? What data are you mining on my phone ?
