Galaxy Store Requires Access to Contacts and Phone

Galaxy Store requires access to Contacts and Phone to run, forcing us to provide access without our concent and without any business reason. Samsung is obviously violating our privacy and privacy of everyone on our Contacts. Please, remove this requirement of this app, this requirement must be optional.

 

Moderator, I know there is a similar post but it is marked as solved without any solution. Please, respect, do not mark this post as solved without any solution.

They use it for marketing and analytics, but say it's for "file sharing".

 

Samsung does not have a file sharing or messaging service attached to the galaxy store application.

 

You can find out about it here:

Samsung Privacy Policy 

 

They also request telephone Permissions to get your phone number and network ID.

The store does not need access to MY PRIVATE info so please remove this requirement.  And while you are at it , Samsung,  also I need to be able to delete the bloatware that you ship with MY DEVICE.
