The new version of DAVDroid needs the “approximate location” permission for the first time. Why is this? I can’t think of any reason it would need to know where the user is, even roughly.
Location Permission - why?
It’s in the FAQ. Please have a look at https://www.davdroid.com/faq/wifi-ssid-restriction-location-permission/
DAVdroid will only ask for location permission when you restrict synchronization to specific WiFi SSIDs.
Does that help you?
Thanks for the response, and it makes sense. It so annoying that one has to worry about these things nowadays.
