As a privacy-friendly application, De-Bloater only demands the very necessary permissions required to offer the promised features, and are
- ACCESS_SUPERUSER - required to handle several tasks that demand root permissions.
- INTERNET & REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES - required to handle app-updates (only applicable for GitHub version).
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - necessary to export de-bloated applications list to device storage for later use.
- QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES - necessary permission to get most applications visible in Android 11 and above.
