Privacy Friendly Torchlight

The Privacy Friendly Torchlight application uses the smartphone’s flash light in order to provide the functionality of a simple torchlight. It belongs to the group of Privacy Friendly Apps.

Our Privacy Friendly Torchlight App differs with respect to two aspects:

1. The Privacy Friendly Torchlight App only requires the minimum amount of permissions:

  • In category "Camera/Microphone": CAMERA
    This permission is required to control the smartphone’s flash light (on/off).

Most of Torchlight Apps in the Google Play Store require additional permissions. E.g. accessing the network or Internet which is mostly used to display advertisement. Some apps have access to GPS or telephony data.
It is possible to buy additional feature for an application using In-App Purchases. This function is integrated in many Google Play Store Apps. As the Privacy Friendly Torchlight application is completely free, it relinguishes In-App Purchases.

2. The Privacy Friendly Torchlight App completely relinquishes advertisement.
Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising and also shortens battery life.


Another permission exists, namely: FLASHLIGHT. But this permission is not enough, to control the LED of the smartphone. Therefore, in fact, the permission CAMERA is needed, which implicitly allows the access of the FLASHLIGHT permission.
