Why does Red e App need permission to access other features on my device?

Downloading an app on your personal device can often seem like an invasion of privacy, especially if the app begins asking for permissions. At Redeapp, we take your privacy seriously, and we want to be sure you understand the requested permissions and why the app asks for them.

After you download Redeapp, you may be asked several questions. Here’s a quick guide to help you understand Redeapp’s privacy policy & why we ask for specific permissions.

Why does Redeapp want to send me push notifications?

Your company will send valuable, time-sensitive messages through Red e App. Enabling push notifications allows you to instantly know when you have a new message. These notifications appear as a pop up on your phone, much like a text message.

Why does Redeapp want to access my photos?

If you would like to send a photo using Red e App, you will be asked for access to your photos. If you’re using an Apple device and you do not wish to send photos, you can simply choose “no” and deny the permission. Red e App does not access any photos on your phone other than the photo you choose to send.

The main difference between how Google and Apple handle permissions is Google asks for ALL permissions upfront and Apple asks WHEN you plan to use an application (like Photos).
