Scary Truth about Facebook Messenger
Here is a short list of the most disturbing permissions it requires and a quick explanation of what it means to you and the privacy settings on your phone.
• Change the state of network connectivity – So Facebook can change or alter your connection to the Internet or your mobile service. You’re basically giving Facebook permission to turn features on your phone on and off and without telling you.
• Call phone numbers and send SMS messages – Facebook is able to automatically send text messages to your contacts on your behalf without your consent.
