There's no doubt that as we see the smartphones and tablets evolving, the flashlights are usually something that is already included. However, many people still prefer to have a third party app for this purpose. So, not surprisingly, you can find a lot of flashlights in both Android and iOS stores for free.
However, there's one main problem that affects most flashlights: the shady permissions. When a flashlight app needs your permission to get call information, your device ID, find your exact location, or access your media files, you should definitely avoid it. It will try to access information that it doesn't require to and can even have malware.
One of the best flashlights in the market is the Super-Bright LED Flashlight App. It already has a huge number of fans and you don't need to worry about any odd permissions.
While the Google Play Store has an endless selection of free Android apps, it’s no secret that a lot of them have malware or shady permissions which give them more access than they require. Some examples of extra permissions in most flashlight apps include the ability to find out your exact location, access your photos/media files on storage and view your device ID and call information.
