Permissions Explained

As a privacy-friendly application, De-Bloater only demands the very necessary permissions required to offer the promised features, and are

  1. ACCESS_SUPERUSER - required to handle several tasks that demand root permissions.
  2. INTERNET & REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES - required to handle app-updates (only applicable for GitHub version).
  3. WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - necessary to export de-bloated applications list to device storage for later use.
  4. QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES - necessary permission to get most applications visible in Android 11 and above.
