WARNING!!! DON’T USE DICTIONARY.COM APP

#1
According to a recent post on the Android subreddit,
Dictonary.com has stealthily added new app permissions to its app on Android and iOS.
The new permissions allow the app to access your device’s location, read phone status and identity, retrieve running apps, pair with Bluetooth devices, run at
startup, access Bluetooth settings, and view WiFi
connections.
The new permissions are being viewed as an invasion
of privacy as the app does not require the added
permissions for any of its functions. The company
justifies the additions as a terms of service and privacy
policy update, while clandestinely avoiding the
actual reason behind its move.

On the App Store, the company updated the
permissions without even mentioning the changes,
which has made some users wary of the company’s
motive. It is possible that the data gathered by the new
permissions will be used for advertising and sharing with other service providers.
In case you’re a dictionary.com user and don't want the app to misuse your personal information, you can
try out other alternatives like Merriam-Webster or Livio.

Why all these unnecessary permissions?
And they didn't have a tangible reason for the privacy invasion.
I have the app on my other phone and this means no more updates of the app.
