Android and Google Drives Permissions

Nov 16, 2016 at 1:26 PM
Hi,

I have been testing Keepass2Android. It is very good and the intregration is nice.
I have two questions regarding permissions asked when trying to open with Google Drive.
  • Why do you required to have "read/write" access to my whole google drive ?
    https://developers.google.com/drive/v2/web/scopes tells me that other options are possible like https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.file for example.
  • Why is the android "Contact" permission is asked/need ?
    I guess the screen asking for "Contact" permission is in fact to look for account on the device. This is quite misleading for the user ...
    KeePassDroid manages to get access to my google drive files without any request except using a "Open from"/"Recent" menu.
Cheers
