Can someone help me understand the excess permissions required by Android apps and how to you restrict them ? One option is not to install the app at all but then most of the apps I see on play store seem to be asking for permissions that don't make sense to me, perhaps I don't understand them that well?
e.g. Installing antivirus apps like AVG or Avast , I see them asking to access location, camera, your personal information, phone calls, your account and more. Why would they need all these and more?
Which apps do you use to restrict such unwarranted access?
