When downloading the RxTx Mobile app through Google Play on an Android device, you are presented with a pop up that says:
RxTx Mobile needs access to:
- Wi-Fi connection information
- Device ID and call information
The reasons that we need this information are found below the image.
We use this to show a “device name” on the “device info” page
We use this to store the downloaded data, as it’s too big to fit in the apps internal storage
Wi-Fi connection information
We use this to know when you are connected to Wi-Fi as some users select to only update the app when connected to Wi-Fi
Device ID and Call Information
We use this to determine whether we are running on a phone, in order to present a “call” button on some alerts.
