Read External Storage

The Read External Storage permission allows your app to access and read data from the device's external storage, such as photos, documents, and other files.

What is Read External Storage Permission?

  • Access User Files: This permission allows your app to access and display files stored on the user's device, enhancing the app's functionality.

  • User Experience: Enabling this permission can provide a more seamless experience for users, especially in apps that involve file uploads, viewing images, or accessing downloaded documents.

You should not enable this permission if your app falls under the Financial Category. Google will reject your application because of security reasons.
